The FAA Finally Provides a UAV Exemption for Yamaha

The Yamaha RMAX is a UAV helicopter that has been in use for over 20 years in places like Australia and South Korea. In spite of its proven technology, because of historical FAA restrictions, America has not used the RMAX. Finally, the FAA has provided an exemption that allows for usage in America
This is exciting news because AUVSI recently released a report stating that agriculture will provide an estimated 18,000 drone-related jobs in California.

“This latest exemption continues to highlight the tremendous potential UAS have in agriculture, helping farmers to more safely, effectively and efficiently manage their crops and improve yields,” said Brian Wynne, president & CEO of AUVSI.
