FAA Increases UAV Nationwide COA Ceiling to 400 Feet
Posted by Matt on 3/29/2016 to Drones
Today the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced that the “blanket” altitude authorization of 200 feet for Section 333 exemption holders has been increased to 400 feet. This essentially doubles the approved commercial UAV flight height legally defined by the FAA. While our testing has found that for orthomosaic creation the ideal height for a 12MP camera, like the one on the DJI Phantom 3, is about 200 – 250 feet, this new ruling by the FAA opens things for infrastructure inspections.
