FAA Updates Commercial Drone “Super List” with New Aircraft


(June 8, 2016) – The FAA updated the super list on June

7, 2016. I previously wrote about the super list and the new 333 exemptions here. The list is currently up to 1,308 aircraft. This list is updating every 2-4 weeks.  Make sure you print out and keep with you the current list when you are flying! Maybe right next to this handy dandy drone operator’s logbook? 🙂

The most important additions are:

  • Freefly Systems Alta 6 (Note: It had always said “Alta” before with no 6 or 8 mentioned after.)
  • Freefly Systems Alta 8

Aircraft still NOT on the list:

  • Autel X-Star
  • Autel Kestrel
  • DJI Matrice 600
  • DJI Agras MG-1 (Ag sprayer)pilotheadshot

As always, if you need legal help, don’t hire a poser, hire a lawyer who is a pilot.
