/UCW/ HOUSTON, TX – Valmie Resources Inc (OTCBB: VMRI) [stock symbol=”VMRI”]┬áhas received a sought-after 333 Exemption to operate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and conduct aerial data collection such as aerial based agricultural applications, search and rescue operations, power line and pipeline inspections, infrastructure surveying, and aerial imaging. The aircraft covered under this exemption and granted permission to fly in the national airspace are the company’s Vertitek V1-X8a and Vertitek V2-H6a.

“Securing the authorization to fly in the national airspace has been a goal for Valmie as we pursue company growth and collaboration with similar-minded businesses,” says Gerald B. Hammack, President and CEO of Valmie Resources. “This opportunity will allow us to demonstrate our technology and provide a safe means to remain on the cutting edge of industry advances.”

Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 grants the Secretary of Transportation the authority to determine whether an airworthiness certificate is required for a UAS to operate safely in the National Airspace System. This authority is being leveraged to grant case-by-case authorization for certain unmanned aircraft to perform commercial operations prior to the finalization of the Small UAS Rule, which will be the primary method for authorizing small UAS operations once it is complete. Until the finalization of the Small UAS Rule, companies can apply for exemption by submitting a detailed petition.
