IN-FLIGHT Data was awarded three GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for drone (UAS) flights recently carried out as part of a beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) project with help from senseFly:

  1. Longest cumulative BVLOS battery-powered UAV flight: 2,723.04 kilometers (Alberta)
  2. Longest cumulative urban flight for a BVLOS civilian UAV (small class – up to 25 kilograms): 414 kilometers (Calgary)
  3. Longest single urban flight for a BVLOS civilian UAV (small class – up to 25 kilograms): 40 kilometers (High River)

The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS were awarded specifically for BVLOS flights conducted in Calgary, Alberta, that saw the City of Calgary commission IN-FLIGHT Data to collect mapping data for the development of Calgary’s first new cemetery since 1940. This resulted in IN-FLIGHT Data completing North America’s first urban BVLOS drone project in a major urban area. Using a senseFly eBee Plus fixed-wing drone, IN-FLIGHT Data successfully conducted a total of 414 kilometers (257 miles) BVLOS flight at an average distance of 2.35 kilometers (1.46 miles) from the pilot.
