Aviation Ministry grants conditional exemption to 20 entities to conduct BVLOS experimental flights of drones

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has granted conditional exemption to 20 entities to conduct Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) experimental flights of drones. The preliminary permission grant is envisioned to assist the supplementary framework development of subsequent Unmanned Aerial Vehicle rules pertaining to BVLOS drone operations.

AIR correspondent reports that BVLOS trials will help create framework for future drone deliveries and other major applications using drones.

The Central Government had constituted the ‘BVLOS Experiment Assessment and Monitoring Committee’ to invite Expression of Interest to undertake BVLOS experimental flights of drones. The Committee evaluated the 34 EOls received and selected 20 consortia for the experimental flights.

This conditional exemption shall be valid for a period of one year, or until further orders.
