Airobotics Receives First-of-Its-Kind Waiver from the FAA to Fly Automated BVLOS Missions Over People

Recommended Posts

Airobotics recently announced that they have received a first-of-its kind waiver, allowing them to fly BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) automated drone missions over people, using a VO (Visual Observer) who is not required to maintain a direct line of sight with the drone at all times.

2018 has been a huge year for Airobotics. In October they raised $30 million in a Series D funding round, in June they were picked for the Wall Street Journal's Top 25 Tech Companies to Watch in 2018, and they've received several other awards and recognitions this year.

Read today's article on the UAV Coach site to learn more about Airobotics' new waiver, and how they are quickly making a play to dominate autonomous drone solutions around the world.
