Castle Creations Embraces New FAA Regulations

Castle Creations, the leader in electronic drive solutions for unmanned aircraft systems, welcomes the new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulation announced this week. The new rules will make it easier for American businesses, farmers, nonprofits and government agencies to use drones in their work.

Tuesday, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration finalizedthe first operation rules for routine commercial use of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or “drones”), opening pathways towards fully integrating drones into the nation’s airspace.

The tough regulations have been a thorn in the side of business owners for years and have made it difficult for them to take a deeper dive into the benefits of utilizing drones in the industry.

“The innovative work we will be able to provide for our customers is endless,” said Brian O’Donnell, Director of Sales and Marketing for Castle Creations. “Our customers in the agriculture, energy and rescue industries are very excited about these new rules and what it is going to do for their bottom line. Castle Creations is excited about this growing opportunity and pleased to be a part of it.”

According to industry estimates, the rule could generate more than $82 billion for the U.S. economy and create more than 100,000 new jobs over the next 10 years.

For Castle Creations’ customers, it couldn’t be better timing. This week Castle Creations has released a firmware update that gives our commercial customers some much needed features such as reverse thrust and improved failure recovery technology. This will be followed by a release for FPV racers and a new platform shortly thereafter. Castle Creations continues to invest in R&D that will lead the industry for years to come.
