FlyingBasket proudly announces that it has become the first in Italy to be granted a Light UAS Operator Certificate by the Italian aviation authority — ENAC – Ente Nazionale Per L’Aviazione Civile.

This milestone marks a significant step forward for FlyingBasket, the Italian drone manufacturer and operator that can now authorise its own operations. The Light UAS Operator Certificate opens up new avenues for our cargo drone operations, enabling us to expand our services, explore the applications further, and collect use cases with various clients. This certification not only validates our commitment to compliance and safety but also positions us as leaders in the drone industry. ” – appreciatively stated Moritz Moroder, CEO of FlyingBasket.
