ADU 01283: How do FPV pilots get away with flying BVLOS?

Today’s episode is brought to you by PROPS programs. Props is Drone U’s exclusive offering to give organizations the ability to distribute UAV training to pilots effectively and efficiently. PROPS allows the leader of a drone program, to assign the appropriate courses according to your program’s needs and timeframes.

On Today’s show we discuss how FPV pilots seem to fly BVLOS and if they violate FAA mandate in doing so? Our question for today is from Tom, who would like to how FPV pilots get away from flying BVLOS. Thank you for the question Tom, we discuss FAA mandate on BVLOS and how pilots can seem to be flying BVLOS but maintaining compliance to FAA mandates. We also discuss how we flew the Isotopes video and talk about how we went about shooting for the video to stay in compliance with BVLOS mandate. We also discuss how pilots can seek waivers/authorizations to fly beyond visual line of sight and the importance of having a VO for flights.
