Washington, D.C.-based Drone as a Service company Measure says it has now been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to commercially operate a total of more than 450 types of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), including gas- and battery-powered platforms.
Measure says it was the first company out of the nation’s capital receive approval from the FAA for commercial drone flights. Back in September, the company inked a Section 333 exemption covering the authorization of more than 300 drone platforms.
“Measure continues to offer the widest range of drone options on the market,” says CEO Brandon Torres Declet. “The true value of drones comes in capturing aerial imagery and providing companies with new sources of data. Measure can operate more than 450 different types of drones – allowing us to remain platform-agnostic and create the best integrated solution for each industry and customer.”
Through its Preferred Aircraft Program, Measure says it will now be able to partner with an even broader range of drone manufacturers to help companies access aerial data.
