PACI receives Part 107 waiver to operate UAS BVLOS



Praxis Aerospace Concepts International (PACI) has announced that it has received a Part 107 waiver from the FAA to operate UAS beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

According to PACI, which is based in Southern Nevada, it is now one of the few companies in the United States allowed to offer BVLOS operations for professional aerial work.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the first Nevada company to receive permission to fly commercial BVLOS,” says Jonathan Daniels, CEO of PACI.

“This is a major step over the hurdle for the commercial UAS industry. This will open up many opportunities for businesses already anchored here and those corporations who want to start-up here at our Searchlight Airpark facility.”

PACI says that it has also received a number of other waivers and authorizations, including <1200’ AGL along the world’s longest civil UAS corridor through the Eldorado Valley, night operations nationally and both day and night within the Las Vegas Class B.
