One Drone Company Who Received an FAA Waiver for Nightime Flight Operations


One rock less on the rode for SkySkopes, a Grand Forks unmanned aerial systems firm, who was granted a Federal Aviation Administration waiver, making them possible to fly at night.

This month, SkySkopes turned the first UAS company in North Dakota to receive the waiver.

“These permissions are a game-changer for the North Dakotan UAS ecosystem,” SkySkopes President and CEO Matt Dunlevy said in a statement.

Part 107 of the FAA regulations restricts drones companies to operate the aircrafts during the knight, but now, SkySkopes will be able to fly after sunset and before sunrise.

The company already completed their first night flight on November 10th.
