RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – A new app is designed to allow real-time approval to fly your commercial drone in the Reno-Tahoe area.
Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is one of four medium-sized (Class C) commercial airports in the nation taking part in a pilot program that will allow Federal Aviation Administration-approved Part 107 Drone Operators to obtain almost real-time approval to fly their drones. The program is designed to provide business drone operators with fast processing of airspace notifications and automatic approval of requests that are below approved altitudes in controlled airspace.
Part 107 drone operators are using their drones for business purposes, and the app is designed to make what has been a sometimes lengthy approval process now move quickly and safely. To begin the process of obtaining the app, click here.
The app is not intended for recreational or hobby users of drones.
Marily Mora, President/CEO of RNO, says, “The drone industry in Nevada is growing rapidly and both Reno-Tahoe International and Reno-Stead Airport are at the forefront of the new technology. The app now becomes a business tool that will help this new industry reach new heights.”
