With the publication of the final rule on Remote Identification of Unmanned Aircraft on the Federal Register, all drone pilots required to register their UAS per FAA requirements must operate their aircraft in accordance with the Remote ID ruling beginning September 16, 2023. For manufacturers, building compliant drones became an obligation as of last year. Flyability’s products being primarily designed to operate indoors , and as indoor spaces are not under FAA regulation, a temporary solution had been implemented: manufacturing drones that were restricted to indoor use.
With the release of the Elios 3, Flyability significantly expanded the use cases for which people used its drones, with several now being outdoors such as inspecting and mapping of pipe racks offshore and on land, radiation surveying of radioactive waste structures, or inspection of bridges and culverts, among many. To enable its users to benefit from the full potential of its technology, Flyability is excited to release the Elios 3 RID.
The Elios 3 RID meets all requirements set forth in the FAA’s Remote ID ruling. Flyability worked with top experts and the FAA to ensure that while complying with the regulation, the implementation thereof would have no adverse effects on the use of the device in areas with no GPS.
“While our drones have typically been used indoors, the Elios 3 has many unique features that mean many want to use it outside too” says Alexandre Meldem, Managing Director of the Americas. “So we’re excited to start shipping the Elios 3 RID to see what new applications our customers will find for it in the great outdoors.”
