Mountain Aviation of Denver Colorado has received FAA approval as the first FAA certified airline authorized to conduct commercial unmanned aircraft systems (“UAS” or “Drones”) operations.

After 23 years of operating private jets for business and leisure travelers, Mountain Aviation is expanding its product offering into the newly regulated field of commercial Drone operations. To ensure public safety, the FAA requires oversight similar to that of passenger aircraft including a requirement that the Drone be operated by only licensed and current aircraft pilots, strict UAS inspection requirements, and adherence to the same Federal Aviation Regulations that apply to manned aircraft.

Besides being an FAA certified air carrier Mountain Aviation, is one of a few aviation companies holding the ARGUS Platinum safety rating uniquely positioning Mountain Aviation for safe commercial Drone operations. Mountain Aviation’s commercial Drone operations will extend to a variety of industries and services including aerial mapping, agricultural support, industrial inspections, aerial video, search and rescue, energy system inspections, as well as forestry and wildlife monitoring.
