First UAV Operator in Canada to be Assessed by Wyvern
Aero-Photos.ca announced today that it has signed a Letter of Intent with Wyvern for them to perform a standard Category 1 EXACT Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) assessment. Aero-Photos will be the first Canadian operator to undergo an EXACT certification process. The EXACT Program is a robust, standardized, international best practices certification program for commercial UAV service buyers and sellers based on the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Document 10019, “Manual on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.”
“We were looking for a way to highlight our professional and disciplined approach that improves safety and security for our customers, for their neighbors and for other users of the airspace,” said Mike Venables, President of Aero-Photos.ca. “Wyvern’s EXACT Program is perfect as it clearly demonstrates to all that we have gone beyond the minimum required to be legal.”
“EXACT was developed in response to the growing UAV market in which technology has outpaced the implementation of regulatory guidance across the globe. We are proud to announce that Aero-Photos.ca has taken the initiative to become EXACT Certified. The willingness to undergo a category 1 assessment promotes their commitment to a safety and quality management program in compliance with industry guidelines,” said Wyvern CEO Art Dawley.
