The BVLOS approval will enable Falcker, Percepto’s partner, to empower their customers to conduct drone flights out of sight of the drone pilot with Percepto’s drone-in-a-box system. An operator located in the control room can easily manage and monitor pre-scheduled fully autonomous drone missions. The approval paves the way for automated inspections of industrial installations and security applications in the region. Falcker will conduct its first drone inspections with the new approval later this month with expansion into Germany and Belgium planned for the near future.

New European Aviation Safety Association (EASA) drone regulations came into effect in January 2022, providing a framework for companies to perform complex operations and harmonizing the rules throughout the continent. Under the new rules approvals granted by one member state can be used in similar conditions throughout all EASA member states. Gaining this first BVLOS waiver in Europe lays the groundwork for the company to achieve future waivers throughout Europe as the company has achieved similarly in the United States, Australia and Israel.
