Granted FAA Part 107.39 Waivers Using ParaZero Systems

Aaron Gabriel Gliner

United States Code of Federal Regulations 14, Part 107, defines the rules and requirements for operators of UAS (a.k.a. drones) for commercial purposes. Section 107.39 restricts any UAS operations over human beings. While necessary for safety reasons, this has been a major detriment to the growth of the commercial UAS industry as it has limited many operations in urban and suburban environments — until now.

In collaboration with the FAA, the ASTM F3322-18 standard was created and those who meet the standard requirements have the opportunity to apply for waivers for Operations Over People. UAS operators that purchased the ParaZero SafeAir with ASTM Professional Kit, received the documentation required to demonstrate the compliance of the system.
