AerialWayz™was recently granted the 107.39(b) Flying Over People & MovingVehicles waiver using a DJI Inspire 1. Fruity Chutes drone parachuteswas an essential part of our application process for the flightsafety aspects. JAS Henry says “When AerialWayz™ was preparingfor the 107.39 waiver, Fruity Chutes Inc. was our first choice,mainly because of their years of experience in the industry, theexcellent feedback communications and quality of the drone parachutesthat fit several different drone platforms.”
AerialWayz™found that just adding a parachute to a waiver application would notbe enough. The applicant needs to know why they need it, the safetyapplications involved, what heights, including what minimum heightsthe drone will be flown and why. Applicants have to answer questionssuch as: does it have an Automatic Trigger System (ATS) andIndependent power source that allows deployment in event of dronepower failure, and will the applicant be able to conduct a trainingprogram for all of the above subjects to their team?
FruityChutes Inc. is the first drone parachute company to have a customerbe granted a long term flight over people waiver (previous waivershave only been for one day events). Fruity Chutes is also the firstdrone parachute company to have a customer gain a flight over movingvehicle waiver.
