FAA approves DroneUp BVLOS drone deliveries for medical services

Drone delivery and logistics company DroneUp has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval to conduct beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone deliveries in the US says the company press release.

The approval permits DroneUp to immediately commence BVLOS operations at Riverside Health System facilities and paves the path for broader BVLOS rollout at additional locations throughout the country with existing and new customers. DroneUp is now one of the few companies in the country to have a BVLOS waiver for medical deliveries.

This approval permits DroneUp to conduct operations beyond the direct visual line of sight of the remote pilot in command throughout the entire flight. Participating visual observers are also not required to maintain sight of the drones. This breakthrough enhances operational capabilities and presents a substantial cost reduction in the last-mile delivery process. By reducing the necessary human resources, DroneUp can now accelerate safe and large-scale deployment of autonomous last-mile drone deliveries. The company envisions a future where autonomous drones play a crucial role in transforming last-mile logistics for retailers, quick-service restaurants, pharmacies and healthcare organizations.
