Camcopter S-100 Receives European Permit To Fly

The Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 uav.

Vienna, Austria (SPX) Jun 14, 2007
As a first, the Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 UAV System has received a Permit to Fly under the new amended European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Regulation. The Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 is one of the first Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and the first helicopter UAV that received an EASA Permit to Fly . This new amended regulation is applied to EU-registered aircraft, for which such a Permit to Fly is required.

The Permit to Fly is issued for those aircraft not holding a type-certificate yet but still are able to perform flights safely under the EASA-approved flight conditions.

The Permit to Fly under EASA-approved flight conditions enables the Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 to obtain national flight permissions within the EU member states much more easily. Neither investigation activities nor national approval activities of the flight conditions are any longer required by the respective national authorities. Besides test flights, also permissions for S-100 system demonstration flights for customers at exhibitions or air shows will be much easier to obtain.
