AUVSI Analysis of Part 107 Waivers

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented the small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) rule in 2016. This is commonly known as Part 107, of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Part 107 states that UAS operators must fly:

  • below 400 feet above ground level (AGL)
  • within visual line of sight
  • during daylight
  • without flying over people
  • only one aircraft
  • and give right of way
  • below 100 miles per hour

To fly out side of these constraints, the UAS operator is required to file and obtain a waiver.

The AUVSI has analyzed the waivers approved by the FAA (see FAA Part 107 Waivers Issued for source), and has produced a report.

The report provides statistics for the various types of waivers approved, and also the types of organizations that filed the waiver. Definitively worth a read.
