Airobotics has confirmed it has obtained a waiver from the FAA allowing them to fly BVLOS for automated drone operations over people.
As a customer of Israel-based ParaZero Technologies, the firm making the announcement, Airobotics will use Parazero’s SafeAir system for increased safety as a risk mitigation strategy.
This waiver will become the second for flight over people with a ParaZero parachute system, following the previous one for North Dakota operator, Botlink.
Avi Lozowick, ParaZero’s director of policy and strategy, commented on the news.
He said: “We are thrilled to see our systems enable extended operations for operators time and time again We continue to provide our customers not only with best-in-class safety systems but also the material and test data to support their operational requests from CAAs.”
The company’s CEO, Eden Attias, added: “The fact that ParaZero is the only company whose parachute systems have been used in multiple successful waiver applications for flight over people is a strong testament to the quality of our products.”
