Primoco UAV SE was recognised by the Department of Military Aviation Supervision of the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic as an approved production and development organisation.
The granting of both authorisations completes the first stage of the company’s long-term preparation for obtaining a military-type certificate for the Primoco UAV One 150M.
Primoco feels that getting certified now is the best route forward as it forecasts the introduction of further drone legislation and restrictions in 2021.
It will also mean that Primoco’s One 150M drone can be included in the military fleet of any NATO country.
Ladislav Semetkovský, Primoco CEO, commented: “Since the beginning of our work on the One 150 model and the military version One 150M, we have approached its development and construction in the same way as a standard aircraft with strict adherence to applicable aviation regulations.
“We very much appreciate the issuance of an authorisation for our company as a development and production organization by the Department of Military Aviation Supervision of the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic, as we are the first company to receive this in the Czech Republic and central Europe.
“Worldwide, Primoco UAV SE is one of only five companies recognised as an organisation under EMAR military aviation regulations.
“For our customers, it is an independent confirmation of the high standards of our company, our internal processes and products.”
