CineDrones Receives FAA Drone Approval

ORLANDO, Fla., April 7, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — CineDrones, LLC,  (CineDrones) is the first Florida and East Coast based aerial cinematography company (with offices in Los Angeles and Atlanta) to receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval for Section 333 exemption for aerial cinematography in the Motion Picture, TV and live broadcast industry and has received a comprehensive FAA Certificate of Authorization (COA) for commercial, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) flights. The blanket COA provides CineDrones with pre-approved authorization to shoot drone aerials on TV and Motion Picture sets without the need to apply for permission in advance.

This provides a significant opportunity for our company and our clients allowing us to react quickly and safely without delay."

The COA authorizes CineDrones to operate a DJI S900, DJI S1000 and is the first in the United States approved to fly the new DJI INSPIRE 1 at or below 200 feet above ground level (AGL) for the purposes of filmmaking.
