ParaZero Technologies and urban air mobility aircraft announced today a first-ever Australian authorization for drones to operate over populated areas and near people when using ParaZero safety systems, approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Agency (CASA).

The precedent-setting CASA authorization follows the major announcement regarding the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) granting the Airobotics Optimus-1EX system an airworthiness Type Certification, a historic milestone that will streamline continuous operational approvals for broad flight operations, including fully autonomous missions, operations over people, and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations.

With the use of ParaZero’s advanced parachute safety technology, ParaZero’s regional partner, OVRL, has landed a precedent-setting historic approval for complex operations.
