BVLOS New Zealand

New Zealand BVLOS Safety Case Week

Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand Part 102 BVLOS approvals

Recently, the NZ Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment supported Hover UAV in a week-long tour focused on beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) safety cases. During the tour, the Hover UAV team visited Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, conducting both full-day and 2-hour introductory sessions to educate attendees on conducting BVLOS operations. The sessions aimed to provide participants with an understanding of the requirements and complexities involved in BVLOS operations.

What was discussed?

The interactive sessions conducted by Hover UAV, with support from the NZ Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment, included a range of topics related to beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations. These sessions were designed to provide attendees with a deeper understanding of the requirements and complexities involved in conducting BVLOS operations, including future requirements for such operations.

One important aspect of these sessions was BVLOS case studies. These case studies provided attendees with real-world examples of BVLOS operations, highlighting the benefits and challenges of conducting such operations. By examining these case studies, attendees were able to gain a better understanding of the various factors that must be considered when conducting BVLOS operations, such as airspace restrictions, regulatory requirements, and safety considerations.

Another key component of these sessions was an expert drone panel. The panel consisted of experts in the drone delivery and advanced air mobility (AAM) sectors, who were able to share their insights and experiences with attendees. This provided a valuable opportunity for attendees to learn from industry leaders and gain a deeper understanding of the latest developments in drone technology and operations.

Overall, these interactive sessions provided a comprehensive overview of the requirements and challenges of BVLOS operations, as well as insights into the latest developments in the drone industry. By attending these sessions, attendees were able to gain a deeper understanding of BVLOS operations and how they can be conducted safely and efficiently.
