Parazero (PRZ), the company behind the parachute drone safety system, has just passed an important milestone, reports dronedj.com. The FAA has issued 100 waivers to 100 companies using its parachute system around the US.
The parachute system allows for flights over people and Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) ensuring that if anything goes wrong, the drone and the people below it will be safe. This allows the craft to carry out more complex flights.
PRZ produces aftermarket parachutes that can be affixed to a range of DJI drones. The company also produces custom solutions, but most importantly, has plans to integrate its parachutes into passenger drones of the future.
In addition, Transport Canada has given Parazero authorisation to work with 20 companies in Canada. PRZ also works with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in Australia and the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (SASSA) to allow for flights over crowds and beyond the pilot’s line of sight.
Parazero Chairman and CEO Eden Attias commented, “PRZ’s success in securing expanded operational approvals gives regulatory bodies around the world a clear precedent, potentially opening up new opportunities for more businesses to use the SafeAir system and creating new revenue streams for the company.”
In Q4 of this year, PRZ aims to enter the EU market.
