Rutherford County, TN First County Government to Receive Waiver to Fly Over People

Recommended Posts

Rutherford County, TN has become the first county government to receive a waiver to fly sUAS over people (also known as a 107.39 waiver).

The county received permission from the FAA to use the Snap drone, created by Vantage Robotics, for their flights over people. They plan to use the waiver in both emergency and non-emergency scenarios.

Read today's article to learn more about Rutherford County's 107.39 waiver and Vantage Robotics' Snap drone. 

In the last year the FAA has quadrupled the total number of 107.39 waivers, issuing fifteen of them to twelve different entities.Since the news of their 107.39 waiver first broke, Rutherford County has already had several agencies contact them to learn how they can pursue one for themselves.

Are you excited about the progress being made on the 107.39 waiver front? Let us know what you think by sharing your comments and thoughts here on this post.
