9/2/16

Since November 2015 we have been legally allowed to fly our drones under our FAA Section 333 exemption.  As of 9/2/16  Eagle’s Pilots are now additionally certified under FAR Part 107.

The FAA recently issued new rules governing operations of drones for commercial purposes.  Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) applies to all commercial operations of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) weighing less than 55 pounds and mandates that any commercial operation of this kind must be under the direct command of a certificated Remote Pilot in Command (RPIC).  On 2 September 2016 our pilots completed the FAA Part 107 small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) training course followed by the required certification and endorsement by an FAA Certified Flight Instructor and are now legally certified to act as RPIC under Part 107. 

 Our RPIC’s are responsible for the safe operation of Eagle’s UAS imaging platforms and oversight of the field operation teams that support them.  Our sUAS systems complement and broaden the impact of our manned imaging aircraft fleet.
