FreeFlight Systems Receives Section 333 Exemption

Will Conduct ADS-B Systems Testing On Commercial UAS Platforms

The FAA has granted as section 333 exemption to FreeFlight Systems for the purpose of testing avionics specifically related to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) integration into the National Airspace System (NAS). The 333 exemption allows FreeFlight Systems to test the Company's advanced, certified avionics that are designed to support safe commercial UAS operations, and which include both ADS-B and radar altimetry applications.

A Section 333 exemption is the FAA's approval to operate UAS platforms commercially within a defined airspace. Using this approval and the Company's 300 acre flight test facility in conjunction with a host of applicable ground and airborne equipment, FreeFlight Systems is well positioned to advance ADS-­B applications in the UAS sector of the NAS. These include sense-and-avoid and other applications promoting safe UAS operation and manned / unmanned airspace integration.

"The grant of the 333 exemption is very important in providing us the opportunity to advance our proven, highly-successful, certified manned aircraft solutions for UAS applications," said John DeBusk, FreeFlight Systems' Chief Technology Officer.

FreeFlight Systems has designed small, lightweight, and low-power ADS-B systems based on the Company's successful FAA-certified RANGR line of ADS-B products. FreeFlight Systems has been very active with NASA, several key Universities, the FAA and private industry in bringing these products to market.
