TEL AVIV, Israel - ParaZero Technologies announced that its ASTM compliant SafeAir Systems for the DJI Phantom 4 Series and DJI Mavic 2 Series comply with the latest Transport Canada regulations for operations over people. This allows licensed operators using the SafeAir Mavic + ASTM Professional Kit and the SafeAir Phantom + ASTM Professional Kit to operate over people, effective immediately.
On June 1, 2019, Transport Canada's new rules for flying Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in Canada came into effect. These rules are divided into two categories, basic and advanced. Advanced operations include flights in controlled airspace, flights near people and flights over people.
The framework developed by TC allows manufacturers or modifiers of RPAS to declare compliance with the requirements of each of the three advanced operations. While DJI has already declared compliance for these RPAS for operations in controlled airspace and operations near people (5 to 30 meters horizontally from people), operations over people are only permitted with ParaZero's SafeAir Systems + ASTM Professional Kit.
ParaZero's declaration of compliance with the TC regulation is supported by the SafeAir's compliance with ASTM F3322-18 Standard Specification for RPAS Parachutes. The industry consensus standard requires over 45 aerial deployments of the parachute system in all failure scenarios validated by a 3rd party testing agency.
ParaZero has led the industry in developing technology and compliant products to enable safe and legal flight over people. To date, ParaZero's SafeAir Systems are the first and only ASTM compliant parachute systems that are in use in the United States under Federal Aviation Authority waivers for operations over people.
