DGAC approves Skeyetech UAS operations

8th February 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Azur Drones has received approval from the French Directorate-General for Civil Aviation (DGAC) to operate its fully-automated Skeyetech UAS in Europe, the company announced on 4 February.

The Skeyetech UAS is designed to take off from a docking station and conduct beyond visual line-of-sight surveillance operation flights, day or night, in urban areas, under the supervision of a remote operator.

Stéphane Morelli, managing director, Azur Drones, said: ‘We are very proud of this approval which rewards an 18-month close collaboration with DGAC services. Our system had to comply with the civilian aviation authorities' requirements in terms of safety, reliability and quality. A process that was obviously very demanding due to the fully automated character of our system.’
