FAA grants Cabezon Group a 333 Exemption for the operation of multiple Small Unmanned Aircraft System platforms

March 30, 2016


Cabezon Group is pleased to announce the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted our corporate 333 Exemption and Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) for commercial small UAS operations. The exemption covers 1120 separate small UAS platforms and virtually unlimited types of commercial mission and operational purpose categories. This exemption allows Cabezon Group to directly provide a vast array of Emergency “Disaster” Incident Planning, Response, and Recovery operational unmanned system services to a variety of public and private sector organizations. Specific services include Search and Rescue, HazMat Response, Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDA), Fire Response, Public Health, Emergency Communications, Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Assessments and Geospatial Mapping, Special Event Support, and Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Exercise and Training Support. In addition, the operational altitude of our COA was recently raised from 200 to 400 ft., providing numerous enhancements to our sUAS capabilities.

Cabezon Group is already a recognized innovator in the unmanned industry with unmatched depth of small UAS Flight and Emergency Management planning and response experience. We also provide various consulting services to include fully customized Flight Operations and Procedures Manual (FOPM) documentation, comprehensive small UAS Workshops, and hands-on small UAS Flight Operations Training (for both general and scenario-specific missions), as well as COA/ECOA (Emergency Certificate of Waiver or Authorization) and 333 Exemption filing guidance and support.

“It is our desire to deliver “turnkey” services in order to assist our clients in successfully entering into the dynamic unmanned systems environment – at their own pace, and in accordance with their specific budgets and mission requirement objectives. Our services are unique in that we also offer assistance with developing NIMS compliant programs that can better prepare clients for various Emergency “Disaster” Incident Response scenarios, including guidance on FEMA reimbursement for Federally declared incidents,” said John Fisher, Cabezon Group’s Chief Executive Officer.
