Posted by Admin

Zurich, Switzerland - October 24, 2023 - SwissDrones, a global manufacturer and operator of long-range uncrewed helicopter systems for inspection, surveillance, and public safety applications, has announced that its SDO 50 V2 multi-mission, single-turbine uncrewed helicopter system has been granted an unprecedented FAA authorization.
