AerialWayz™ was recently granted the 107.39(b) Flying Over People & Moving Vehicles waiver using a DJI Inspire 1. Fruity Chutes drone parachutes was an essential part of our application process for the flight safety aspects. JAS Henry says “When AerialWayz™ was preparing for the 107.39 waiver, Fruity Chutes Inc. was our first choice, mainly because of their years of experience in the industry, the excellent feedback communications and quality of the drone parachutes that fit several different drone platforms.”
AerialWayz™ found that just adding a parachute to a waiver application would not be enough. The applicant needs to know why they need it, the safety applications involved, what heights, including what minimum heights the drone will be flown and why. Applicants have to answer questions such as: does it have an Automatic Trigger System (ATS) and Independent power source that allows deployment in event of drone power failure, and will the applicant be able to conduct a training program for all of the above subjects to their team?
Fruity Chutes Inc. is the first drone parachute company to have a customer be granted a long term flight over people waiver (previous waivers have only been for one day events). Fruity Chutes is also the first drone parachute company to have a customer gain a flight over moving vehicle waiver.
AerialWayz™ specializes in aerial security surveys and systems as well as offering an aerial security training program.
