Over 100 organisations in the U.S. have now been granted Section 333 commercial exemptions by the FAA to fly senseFly drones, confirming the eBee as the country’s most exempted fixed-wing UAS and senseFly as the second most exempted UAS brand overall.
Such exemptions permit these companies to use senseFly drones for paid work, providing they also hold the requisite Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA). Nine of these 110 organisations hold exemptions that apply to multiple models of senseFly drone. “We are delighted to see professional senseFly drones being so well accepted, both by the FAA and the market in general,” said senseFly CEO Jean-Christophe Zufferey. “This exemption achievement really comes down to the inherent safety of our lightweight, intelligent systems. We now look forward to more operators being able to benefit from these products as longer term UAS regulations are put in place.”
