Flirtey Secures FAA Waiver for BVLOS Flights in Reno, Will Use It for Medical Drone Deliveries

Recommended Posts

Drone delivery company Flirtey recently announced that they have received approval from the FAA to conduct BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) flights in the city of Reno, NV.

For now, the approval will be used to deliver Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for the immediate treatment of people undergoing cardiac arrest. Flirtey's waiver application was assisted by test flights they conducted in Reno as part of their involvement in the UAS IPP (UAS Integration Pilot Program), which was created to allow local and state governments to test various types of flying generally prohibited by the FAA's Part 107 rules (such as flying BVLOS).

While commercial drone deliveries seem to languishing, medical drone deliveries have been making steady progress. Read today's article to learn more about Flirtey's BVLOS waiver, Reno's involvement in the UAS IPP, and a look at BVLOS waivers issued in the last six months.
