AATI has completed a first successful flight on the VantisUAS System

WILLISTON, North Dakota — American Aerospace Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce the successful completion of its initial Functional Flight Check (FCF) on the Vantis System, North Dakota’s statewide Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) system administered by the Northern Plains UAS Test Site (NPUASTS). This inaugural flight marks a significant milestone in verifying the integration of aircraft operations with state-of-the-art communication systems and precise landing patterns.

“Through AATI’s first flights on Vantis, we witness more than just a milestone in UAS – it signifies a leap forward in enabling BVLOS operations and solidifies Vantis as a trailblazer in setting precedents for cutting-edge third-party services.” Said Erin Roesler, NPUASTS Deputy Executive Director. “This achievement not only opens doors for another UAS operator but also underscores the tangible impact autonomy has in propelling communities toward progress, showcasing North Dakota’s commitment to innovation and its continuous journey toward a future shaped by limitless possibilities.”

This first flight serves as a critical step in ensuring that all systems operate seamlessly and meet our stringent safety and operational standards. The aircraft, communications, and procedures were rigorously tested, setting the stage for subsequent operations on the network.

The second flight is scheduled to specifically verify the robustness and reliability of BVLOS flights on the Vantis System, further demonstrating our commitment to advancing aerospace technology and enhancing the infrastructure supporting unmanned aircraft systems.

American Aerospace is dedicated to pioneering innovations that improve safety, efficiency, and the effectiveness of aviation applications for oil and gas. This flight test on the Vantis System is part of our ongoing efforts to lead the industry in technological advancements and operational excellence.
