DRAGANFLY'S HEAVY LIFT DRONE RECEIVES SPECIAL FLIGHT OPERATIONS CERTIFICATE (SFOC)
Draganfly Inc. has received a Transport Canada special flight operations certificate (SFOC) for its
Heavy Lift drone
to support advanced flight testing above 55 pounds/25 kilograms MTOW (maximum takeoff weight). This will allow highly specialized development of advanced delivery, industrial and defence applications.
The Heavy Lift flight testing SFOC allows Draganfly to conduct these specialized and advanced operations utilizing the Heavy Lift within an approved flight test area, enabling the company to initiate direct application and use case testing. This development also allows Draganfly to enhance and optimize highly specialized operational and maintenance manuals and standard operating procedures for a variety of conditions and scenarios.
"This certification demonstrates our commitment to meeting regulatory standards and allows us to advance our Heavy Lift platform through advanced and application-specific evaluations, which broaden and deepens the use cases for this incredible drone," said Cameron Chell, president and chief executive officer of Draganfly.
In July, 2023, Draganfly received its first
SFOC from Transport Canada
for beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and operations above 400 feet for wildfire suppression. This authorization allows the company to cover extensive regions and rapidly deploy drones to help firefighters during wildfire suppression.
