Intel Receives Drone Waiver from the FAA

Intel has received the Part 107 Certificate of Waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration. The waiver was posted today on the FAA’s website. The agency waived for Intel regulations regarding daylight operation and the operation of multiple small unmanned aircraft. Intel is authorized for operation of multiple small unmanned aircraft systems at night within special security notice flight restriction areas in the United States. This is an extension of the Section 333 Exemption that Intel received earlier this year to fly multiple aircraft in the United States for the company’s Drone 100 light show. This FAA waiver extends the capability for Intel in the US, to innovate beyond Drone 100 آ– to 100s and even 1,000s of drones in the future.
