NUAIR receives civil flight authority for BVLOS operations extending 240 square miles

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted NUAIR Part 107 waiver enabling remote, autonomous beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations throughout a 240 square mile airspace in upstate New York, increasing the commercial BVLOS area in New York by more than 3x or 300%.

NUAIR expanded its operations earlier in 2023 creating the NUAIR Center of Excellence headquarters at Syracuse Hancock International Airport. The acceptance of this 240 square mile waiver – as well as the Special Flight operations certificate approval for Canadian operations in 2023 – gives NUAIR the autonomy to continue offering white glove uncrewed aircraft system (UAS) testing services in the state of New York and beyond.

According to the press release, NUAIR’s Center of Excellence at SYR presents the full realization of the NUAIR Alliance, which includes key industry players such as ResilienX, TruWeather Solutions, Aloft, Hidden Level, SRAA, and UFA. This Civil BVLOS Waiver will allow for broader testing of UAS opportunities and pave the way for scalable and replicable results across the globe.

“This BVLOS waiver from the FAA is an important step in proving Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft can safely integrate into the National Airspace System,” said Jason Terreri, Executive Director of Syracuse Regional Airport Authority. “Testing real-world applications of UAS and AAM right here in Central New York showcases the leadership position our region has taken in these efforts.”
