| Airspace Authorizations and Waiver Submission ⓘ More Info |
The FAA has laid out all of the regulations and limitations under which commercial sUAS pilots can operate. For some companies, the need may arise to conduct missions outside of these guidelines. To fly in controlled airspace, drone pilots need to apply for an Airspace Authorization Waiver from the FAA. To go beyond the FAA Regulations under Part 107 such as night flights, an application for a Waiver must be made to the FAA and additional training may be required. Our team can help you navigate this process.
