Australian regulator approves OVRL drone flights over people using ParaZero safety system

Drone safety systems company ParaZero Technologies, and OVRL, an Australian commercial drone operator and training organization, have announced authorization for drones to operate over populated areas and near people, when using ParaZero safety systems, approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Agency (CASA).

With the use of ParaZero’s parachute safety technology, ParaZero regional partner, OVRL, has secured approval for complex operations, says the press release.  OVRL’s tailored safety case and Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) application helped facilitate the approval, paving the way for all organizations throughout Australia to benefit from similar operational approvals.

“We are extremely proud to be the first commercial drone operator and training provider to bring this exciting new capability to the Australian market,” commented Tim Butler, CEO of OVRL.

The CASA authorization follows the announcement regarding the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granting the Airobotics Optimus-1EX system an airworthiness Type Certification, streamlining continuous operational approvals for broad flight operations, including fully autonomous missions, operations over people, and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations.
