The Denmark Civil Aviation Administration has authorised Azur Drones to use its Skeyetech drone-in-a-box solution in the Copenhagen area. The autonomous drone will carry out safety and operations support missions on an Oil&Gas sector major player’s site, opening the path to operational deployment.
According to an Azur press release, this confirms compliance of the French company’s solution with the new European regulatory requirements. The authorisation follows a risk analysis Specific Operational Risk Assessment (SORA) approved by the EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). For several years, Azur has been contributing to regulatory works at the international level to make autonomous flights a standard.
In 2019, Azur was among the first to obtain a generic flight authorisation from the French Civil Aviation Authority for autonomous operations carried out remotely by security personnel that does not meet remote pilot training requirements. Ever since, the company has been deploying its systems in Europe and the Middle East. Skyeyetech is among most frequently deployed autonomous drone system in the world with over 150 users and 10,000 operational flights.
