United Aerial receives FAA section 333 exemption

December 1, 2015

In 2015, after waiting nearly a year, UA received our FAA exemption 333, which allows us to legally operate drones commercially. Exemption 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (FMRA) allows the Secretary of Transportation the authority to grant UAV companies an airworthiness certificate. The "exemption" itself is to the law requiring an aircraft to register with a licensed pilot in order to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS). As of August 2016, less than 6,000 of these exemptions have been approved. We pride ourselves on essentially having an "FAA seal of approval."
