Latest News From Brazil


We have been talking to our friends over at Energias, a Brazilian electric utility company (read more about them here), and what they have been up to over the last few months. Check out what they have been doing below.

SIAD AERO was given approval to operate the Flamingo Mk3 in controlled airspace with manned aircraft.  The unmanned Flamingo Mk3 had ground and air movements coordinated by Air Traffic Control and successfully conducted autonomous operations and sequencing with regular traffic.  This is the first approval of this type granted by the air space regulator in Brazil and is another step towards full certification of the Flamingo Mk3 in Brazil.

We are really proud of our pedigree and original design intent to ensure we captured our design and testing to facilitate certification of our platform when the need arose.
