State Farm Gets First National Waiver for Damage Assessment UAV Flights

Recommended Posts

The FAA has issued the first national waiver ever to State Farm for drone operations over people and BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) to conduct UAV missions for damage assessment. The waiver can be used anywhere in the U.S., and is good until November of 2022.

Given the number of special BVLOS and flight over people waivers issued in the last several months, it looks like the FAA is starting to feel more comfortable issuing these types of waivers, and that companies are starting to better understand how to navigate the waiver process to obtain a successful outcome.

Read today's article for more information on State Farm's new waiver, and the process they followed to get it.
