Hayden company contracts drone service to farmers

The Federal Aviation Administration recently began to permit commercial drones, creating a large opening for industry to start taking advantage of the systems for farming and other uses.

In Star, Idaho, Advanced Aviation Solutions – known as ADAVSO – is providing such services for local businesses in partnership with Empire. The companies have started to contract the service out to agricultural entities. Personal use of drones is still allowed, but farmers and others cannot use drones for commercial purposes unless they have the special permit obtained by companies like Empire. It is the only company in Idaho and the 13th nationally to obtain the permission. Full story.
