The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved Measure to operate gas-powered and additional battery-powered drones, making Measure the only company with permission to fly more than 450 different types of aircraft for a broad range of commercial applications. The authorization solidifies Measure as the nation’s leading drone operator.
“Measure continues to offer the widest range of drone options on the market,” Measure CEO Brandon Torres Declet. “The true value of drones comes in capturing aerial imagery and providing companies with new sources of data. Measure can operate more than 450 different types of drones, allowing us to remain platform agnostic and create the best integrated solution for each industry and customer.”
Measure is the first Washington, D.C. based company to receive approval from the FAA for commercial drone flights. With headquarters in the nation’s capital, Measure takes an active approach to advocating for sensible regulations and safe, legal, and insured drone operations. CEO Declet recently completed a tenure on the FAA’s Drone Registration Task Force.
The additional authorizations allow Measure to partner with an even broader range of drone manufacturers to help companies access aerial data. Through its Preferred Aircraft Program™, Measure is able leverage its authorization to benefit manufacturers seeking an approved operator and commercial customers looking for best in class solutions.
