EASA approves FLARM for helicopters

EASA has formally approved FLARM for fixed installation in helicopters. Being already installed in over 40,000 General Aviation aircraft, helicopter operators previously had to apply for individual installation approvals from EASA or use PowerFLARM Portable. The newly published EASA Certification Memorandum (CM) extends generic FLARM installations from ELA2 aircraft (previously available as a Standard Change or an […] EASA has formally approved FLARM for fixed installation in helicopters.

Major Drone Groups Cement Support for Know Before You Fly

“Partnership” may be the best way to describe the recent AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 conference in Chicago. Across the expo, hundreds of UAV-centric groups and companies found new ways to collaborate to make an already-vibrant industry more effective. In the arena of drone-issue public education, perhaps no relationship is stronger than the new commitment between the […] The post Major Drone Groups Cement Support for Know Before You Fly appeared first on DRONELIFE. “Partnership” may be the best way to describe the recent AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 conference in Chicago.
