FAA Grants Eight More UAS Exemptions

FAA Grants Eight More UAS Exemptions


FAA, February 03, 2015 - The Federal Aviation Administration has granted eight more regulatory exemptions for commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operations, bringing the total number of exemption grants to 24.

The agency has issued new exemptions to

  • Total Safety U.S. Inc. for flare stack inspections
  • Slugwear, Inc. (dba LikeonaTree Aerial) for aerial photography and surveys
  • Team 5, LLC;
  • Shotover Camera Systems LP;
  • Helinet Aviation Services, LLC;
  • Alan D. Purwin for film and television production.

    The FAA also amended the exemptions previously granted to
  • Pictorvision, Inc.
  • Aerial MOB, LLC
    to let the companies fly additional types of small UAS.

    Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx found that the UAS in the proposed operations do not need an FAA-issued certificate of airworthiness because they do not pose a threat to national airspace users or national security. Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 permits those findings.

    In granting the exemptions, the FAA considered the planned operating environments and required certain conditions and limitations to assure the safe operation of these UAS in the National Airspace System. For example, operations require both a pilot and observer, the pilot must have at least an FAA Private Pilot certificate and a current medical certificate, and the UAS must remain within line of sight at all times.

    As of today, the FAA has received 342 requests for exemptions from commercial entities and individuals.
