Fly Your Drone Beyond Visual Line of Sight with an FAA Waiver!

How-To Apply for a Drone Waiver, Part 107.31: Flying Beyond the Pilot’s Visual Line-of-Sight.

Did you know you can apply for a waiver to fly your drone beyond visual line of sight? It isn’t the easiest waiver to obtain, but it’s not impossible either.

Watch this recording of our live drone webinar, “Beyond Visual Line of Sight,” to learn more about BVLOS waivers and the application process!

    I heard waivers take 6-18 months before anyone even looks at it. FAA needs to make more effort to understand how drones are used. People should never fly a drone miles away without proper approval and training that’s a given but flying with 100% visual sight is not realistic. People flying racing drones around a park behind a tree over a building back they aren’t flying where airplanes or people are should not have to be stuck by these rules either. RC model aircraft which are flown by VLOS 100% mostly at designated club fields should just be made exempt from from all of these rules allowed to stay under 336 rules. There has never been a problem with RC model aircraft ever all of the issues have been from people flying long range drones or FPV mostly multi-rotor drones. The FAA needs to zero in on the problems around drones which market their ability to fly long range. I own a DJI I think it’s amazing the technology it has to be able to fly it long range and take video do all the things it can do also need to follow rules to make sure it’s safely done. This is where the FAA needs to zero in on with rules and regulation with proper training still should be able to fly BVLOS safely in zones where airplanes never fly, and is far away from people. If one wants to fly in other airspace they will need to get approvals. Just listening to this guy he has no clue what spread spectrum radios are how they don’t need licensed frequency’s that’s an old way of thinking.

    So the see and avoid is almost impossible to comply with, even if I have adsb in and out, even if I am qualified to make aviation radio transmittions and I make appropriate calls, there could be non radio equipped manned craft that I get in the vicinity of,. ( I’m talking bvlos and also flying above 400’ agl.

    What if you are visually disabled and can fly better with fpv?

    Can we get links for the Drone InfoZone Downloads? Thanks for the upload.

    Scare tactics.

    You provided a lot more questions than answers. Maybe in future presentations give more examples of what the FAA felt would be appropriate solutions to these questions. I’m sure the FAA has approved quite a few of these waivers by now so there should be some best practices you can share. If you have done future videos then edit your description to include links to them or put links in the comments.

    Sounds like this waiver is almost impossible to satisfy all the questions because you can take what if’s to infinity and beyond.
