The Federal Aviation Administration has granted State Farm a national waiver that widely expands how and when the company can use drones to assess property damage. The waiver permits pilots to fly the unmanned aircraft systems over people and beyond the line of sight in any claims situation, which State Farm said is a first for any company in the United States. A previous waiver also limited drone use during the claims process to short periods of time in hurricane-damaged areas.
