PINC Air Granted an Exemption for FAA Drone Commercial Use

On the 25th of November, 2015 in Alameda, California, the FAA granted PINC a Section 333 exception to initiate commercial operations with the PINC Air FAA drone for commercial use in US airspace. This permission cleared the way for us to install aerial sensor platforms—called PINC Air—in outdoor and indoor spaces to track hard-to-reach assets and inventory efficiently using GPS, RFID, and OCR sensors as well as barcode readers.

CEO of PINC Matt Yearling Responds

In response to the granting of permission to occupy US airspace for FAA drone commercial use, the CEO of PINC Matt Yearling expressed his pleasure about achieving this milestone in the company’s history and explained how the use of US airspace would keep PINC Air away from residential areas:

“This is a major milestone in the development of PINC Air. With the FAA’s primary concern being safety, this exemption grant supports our design goal of safely collecting supply chain inventory data in industrial environments, away from any residential areas. PINC Air operates in geo-fenced commercial zones, under the supervision of qualified personnel, while following a pre-programmed path to ensure safety and effectiveness.”

PINC Air: An Industry Leader in the Unmanned Aircraft Market

As the launch of the PINC Air FAA drone for commercial use was announced, other large companies and thought leaders in the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) market paid attention. Terry Miller, the president of Transport Risk Management, Inc. expressed his admiration for PINC Air as an impressive use of aircraft:

“As the leading UAS insurance brokerage in the United States, we see thousands of different unmanned aircraft use cases. Without a doubt, some of the most unique and impressive uses we’ve seen are those developed by PINC.

Now having been awarded their FAA approved Part 333 Exemption and operational authority, PINC is ideally positioned to maintain its leadership role. We feel strongly that the technology, training and operational professionalism employed by PINC will serve to revolutionize the supply chain industry.”
