Praxis Aerospace Concepts International (PACI) announced this week that it has been granted a Part 107 waiver under the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) regulations to fly drones beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). PACI, a Nevada-based company, is now one of the very few companies in the United States permitted to fly their drones BVLOS for professional aerial work. PACI CEO, Jonathan Daniels, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be the first Nevada company to receive permission to fly commercial BVLOS. This is a major step over the hurdle for the commercial UAS industry. This will open up many opportunities for businesses already anchored here and those corporation who want to start-up here at our Searchlight Airpark facility.” To view PACI’s Part 107 wavier, click here.
