Skydio is introducing a new service to help its enterprise customers streamline their drone program documentation and secure waivers and exemptions from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for advanced operations.

Getting approvals from the FAA for advanced operations such as beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights is no cakewalk. The regulatory process requires organizations to document their program policies and flight operations extremely thoroughly so that the FAA can see how operators will mitigate risk and ensure the safety of other aircraft and people. Naturally, most drone users find this process to be daunting.

But with Skydio Regulatory Services, customers can delegate most of the heavy lifting to the US drone maker’s experienced regulatory team. With pre-prepared policy document templates and associated guidebooks and manuals, enterprise users can structure their drone program in a way that it can be scaled or transitioned to advanced operations without any hiccups.

Our experienced team of aviation regulatory experts, with a proven track record of success, understand the approval process and will help you to develop your concept of operations to manage risks, providing guidance throughout each phase to simplify the complexity of writing a waiver application.
