The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules for small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), or “drone,”operations are spelled out in Part 107 of the Federal Register. This includes the general operating requirements and the certification of pilots.
We have 12 professionals with certification as a remote pilot with a small UAS rating. They have diverse skills and detailed knowledge of our aerial platforms and the sensors they carry. Currently we work within line-of-sight restrictions, which generally limits us to a radius of about one mile. We expect modification of this restriction and a move to beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) flying at some point over the next few years.
Other restrictions include a maximum flying height of 400 feet above ground, a maximum gross takeoff weight (MGTW) of 55 pounds, and a maximum speed of 100 mph (87 knots).
