Aeryon Labs Gets U.S. Regulatory Approval For Its Drones

Press release via Aeryon Labs Inc. — Aeryon Labs Inc., a Waterloo-based maker of small drones, expects to see a lot of growth following regulatory approvals for its drones in the United States.

“This is absolutely enormous in multiple ways,” said David Kroetsch, the firm’s founder, president and chief executive officer.

The company announced Wednesday that Kansas State University at Salina and the Michigan State Police are now able to use Aeryon drones statewide. And VDOS Global LLC, a company that uses Aeryon drones to inspect onshore and offshore infrastructure in the oil and gas industry can use the technology in Alaska, Hawaii and on the continental U.S.

“It is a giant vote of confidence by our customers that they are confident enough with what they have been doing with the product thus far, that they are rolling it out on a statewide basis,” Kroetsch said.

It is also a vote of confidence from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, which specifically approved the use of the Aeryon SkyRanger by the Michigan State Police, and the smaller Aeryon Scout by Kansas State University.

Both of those approvals are for statewide usage.
