FAA Grants 400' UAS Operations

The Federal Aviation Administration has announced a "blanket" approval for section 333 UAS operators to fly up to an altitude of 400 feet. MAPPS has been working with FAA on this change since the idea was first raised during a session at the 2015 Summer Conference in Sunriver, OR.  This will make aerial geospatial data acquisition projects more commercially viable and profitable!  For details, click here.
