Boeing Company subsidiary Insitu has announced the completion of the first interim Type Certification Board Meeting (TCBM) in support of the ScanEagle3 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification program, the company said.

FAA teams, including Aircraft Certification (AIR), Aircraft Flight Status (AFS), Air Traffic Organization (ATO), and Aircraft Unmanned Systems (AUS), came together at Insitu's headquarters in Bingen, Washington for the TCBM, a first for the group of FAA teams.
