Carbonix, has obtained BVLOS approval in Riverstone, Greater Sydney, using our Australian-built VTOL/fixed wing aircraft in the 25 kg category.
The approval from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is one of the first given to a long-range aerial data capture aircraft, paving the way for us to complete BVLOS testing and missions with sophisticated payloads, including surveying LiDar scanners and photogrammetry cameras.
Under the new approval, our uncrewed aircraft are cleared to fly inside airspace controlled by the RAAF Richmond base, with collaboration and coordination from the Australian Air Force.
“This is an exciting milestone for Carbonix. It’s the culmination of years of testing and precision engineering validating the risk profile of our aircraft and our procedures,” Carbonix CEO, Philip van der Burg said of the approval.
