Airobotics has been awarded Australia’s first and only Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approval to operate BVLOS drone flight.
Taking place from its Remote Operations Centre, the approval also requires no aircrew to be present at the client site.
Niv Russo, vice vresident of Aviation and Compliance at Airobotics said: “This landmark approval is a major achievement for Airobotics and its future growth across Australia. Removing aircrews from potentially dangerous environments, like mines, enables customers to extract maximum value and reduce risk from their business operations by leveraging technology and automation.”
He added: “This progression marks the next step for Airobotics as we continue to break new ground in unmanned drone technology to deliver safer and more accurate, data-driven solutions.”
In October, CDP reported on how Airobotics had raised an additional £23m in funding to scale up drone solutions.
