R550X applicability

The R550X is an uncrewed helicoper based on the Robinson R44 Raven II, which is already commonly used in aerial application. The R550X can be used for aerial spraying applications if the pesticide is approved for conventional aerial application and all FAA airworthiness and Part 137 operator regulations are met.

For more information on airworthiness certificates and operating waivers for the R550X, please reach out to our agriculture team.
