AMA Drone Report 06.06.19: Chute Waiver, Know B4 U Fly, Red Cat

Also: AMA TAG Grants, Rugo 2 Drone Light, DJI Welcome, New Hampshire Legislature

The FAA has issued Hensel Phelps Construction Company of Washington, D.C., a Part 107 waiver to operate a DJI Phantom 4 drone, equipped with a parachute, over people. A waiver is required to operate a drone contrary to the rules in part 107.

The FAA did not certify or approve the parachute that will be used; however, the FAA determined that the waiver application sufficiently met the standard design specification (ASTM 3322-18) and that the proposed sUAS operation could be safely conducted under the terms and conditions of a waiver. Supporters of the Know Before You Fly campaign have sent a letter to the House Committee on Appropriations urging Congress to provide funding for the campaign. The letter stresses the urgent need to educate the public and ensure the safety of the skies. Red Cat became a founding member of the First Person View (FPV) Freedom Coalition after the coalition’s official launch as a 501(c)(3) organization. As part of the coalition, Red Cat continues to advocate for airspace for recreational drone pilots and FPV operators, provides safety and education guidelines compliant with the FAA and integrates the FPV community into the regulatory framework as an FAA community-based organization (CBO). All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
