Jenn Player



Jenn Player is Head of Global Aviation Regulatory Affairs at Skydio. Jenn collaborates with customers, regulators, and standards development organizations to advance autonomy and unlock docked drone operations.

Jenn participates in ASTM Committee F38, JARUS ISB/WG-AW, and the FAA Advanced Aviation/Drone Advisory Committee in working groups on BVLOS operations, detect and avoid technology, remote ID, airworthiness, and autonomy. She served as an industry working group lead on the FAA’s UAS BVLOS Aviation Rulemaking Committee and participated in the UAS Detection and Mitigation Rulemaking Committee.

Jenn has over 10 years of experience in uncrewed aircraft systems research, testing, and operations. Her early work to integrate drones into the National Airspace System through the FAA’s Pathfinder Program with BNSF Railway led to the first long-range BVLOS civil flight in the continental United States.

Prior to joining Skydio, Jenn founded Avineer LLC, a consulting firm helping manufacturers in the drone delivery space navigate the type certification process and helping enterprises gain approvals for BVLOS and other complex operations. 

Jenn received a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University and has completed graduate coursework in Robotics and Data Science.
