ParaZero Selected as UAS Safety Provider for Multiple UASIPP Teams

ParaZero is pleased to announce that it is a proud member of multiple selected UASIPP teams working on the safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) operations into the National Airspace System (NAS).

On May 9th, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced the ten state, local, and tribal governments selected to test complex Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) operations. The announcement came as part of the DOT’s UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP) mandated by President Trump this past October and designed to accelerate the integration of UAS into the national airspace system (NAS) through public-private partnerships. The ten teams were chosen out of 149 teams that applied.

ParaZero is a proud member of a number of the selected teams and will work together to promote the safe integration of UAS in the NAS. The IPP is an important program that will help pave the way for the emerging UAS market. “Drones are already a growing part of our daily lives. The program will enable policy makers and industry players to learn how we can allow extended operations such as flight over people and beyond visual line of site without compromising on safety,” said Eden Attias, ParaZero’s CEO.

This program is expected to foster a meaningful dialogue on the balance between local and national interests related to UAS integration and provide actionable data to inform rulemaking.

“The data, knowledge and expertise generated from the program will open the skies for the UAS industry which will lead to major economic growth,” said Avi Lozowick, ParaZero’s Director of Policy and Strategy. “We look forward to working with our partners on this exciting project and thank the DOT and the FAA for their decision.”

This partnership will evaluate a host of operational concepts, including, package delivery, public safety, agriculture, construction, inspection and more.
