Huntsville, Ala. (November 10, 2016) – Atlantic would like to be the first to recognize the accomplishments of Nate Litter for earning his Remote Pilot Certificates from the FAA.
The FAA published its Small UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) Rule (Part 107) on August 29, 2016. This ruling established a remote pilot in command position and stipulates that any person operating a small UAS (under 55 lbs) must either hold a remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating or be under the direct supervision of a person holding that certificate.
Mr. Litter serves as Atlantic’s Director of Flight Operations and he holds many other FAA certificates including A&P (Airframe & Powerplant). He oversees Atlantic’s team of full-time pilots and manages Atlantic’s fleet of aircraft.
“UAS has been a hot topic in the professional surveying and mapping profession for several years”, said Steve Denney, Atlantic’s CEO and a fellow FAA certified pilot. “We believe that Nathanael now positions our firm to not only operate our own UAS platforms but we can also consult with our clients and oversee their flights, process their data, and certify the results”.
Atlantic is a technology-driven remote sensing, surveying and consulting business. Atlantic’s staff of certified professionals, who are known as thought leaders in their field, provide geospatial and consulting solutions to government and private sector clients.
