WPG Receives FAA Drone Waiver for 14 CFR § 107.51(c)—Visibility and 14 CFR § 107.51(d) —Cloud Clearance and added six new FAA Remote Pilots
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, USA, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The World Protection Group (WPG), a full-service security firm specializing in international executive protection and executive protection drone operations, has just recruited six more FAA certified remote pilots to the team. This marks another milestone for the executive security leader which has also received its fourth FAA waiver.
The World Protection Group is the only Executive Protection firm in the United States to acquire four of the most difficult-to-obtain FAA drone waivers. Only experienced WPG FAA drone pilots with the expert level of knowledge and training can implement its use.
1. Waiver- 107.29 (a)(2) – Night Operations
2. Waiver- 107.39 – Fly Operations over people
3. Waiver- 107.31 – Beyond Visual line of sight
4. Waiver 107.51 (c&d) – Visibility operating limitations
WPG also has airspace authorizations covering all the major airports in the Los Angeles County and Las Vegas areas.
In addition, WPG CEO Kent Moyer has recently traveled to Austin, Texas, to complete the training required to earn the Top Level 2 Remote Pilot Certification from the Associate for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. It is an honor that very few individuals have achieved in the United States and demands a high level of skills and proficiency.
WPG employs only the best FAA remote drone pilots operating its extensive fleet of drones. This grant of waivers by the FAA will allow its pilots to conduct wide-ranging aerial sweeps, investigations, mapping, and patrols of properties and cities. In addition, air patrols working under the waivers will have greater surveillance and counter-surveillance abilities and far-reaching search and rescue capabilities, disaster response, and risk/vulnerability assessments. As a result, WPG’s executive protection drone services are more sophisticated, thorough, and concentrated than ever before, ensuring its clients’ safety at all times and under any circumstance.
