Sundance Media Group currently holds a Part 107 Waiver for sUAS operations within the McCarran class B controlled airspace for both day and night operations. Having this waiver allows us to coordinate with Air Traffic Control and operate legal sUAS flights within the controlled airspace. Our airframes have manufacturer removal of airspace restricts with the granting of this FAA waiver. We also hold class b authorizations day and night for JFK and Den, with several C and D airspace pending or approved.
