110 Midt (central command for fire brigades): Leading the Way with FlyCart 30

Norway’s 110 Midt (Mid Norways central command for fire brigades) is demonstrating pioneering leadership in emergency response technology. They have embraced the DJI FlyCart 30, a cutting-edge delivery drone, with the potential to revolutionize their operations.

“The FlyCart 30 is our own mini helicopter and airborne Utility Vehicle, and would change forever how we react within first responders and logistics”

Tiepoint, a company specializing in drone regulations and flight approvals, plays a vital role in 110 Midt’s successful adoption of the FlyCart 30. They are collaborating with the fire brigade to establish operational procedures and navigate the process of obtaining flight permits.

Tiepoint’s SORA: Enabling Safe and Compliant FlyCart 30 Operations

The aviation industry places paramount importance on safety and adherence to regulations. This is especially true for larger drones like the DJI FlyCart 30. Tiepoint’s SORA (Specific Operations Risk Assessment) serves as a critical foundation for safe operations, addressing the unique requirements of this drone. By tailoring the SORA specifically for the FlyCart 30, Tiepoint not only ensures regulatory compliance for 110 Midt but also supports the development of procedures, checklists, and training materials essential for efficient drone operations.

The DJI FlyCart 30’s potential for emergency response extends far beyond the innovative adoption by 110 Midt. Its ability to deliver payloads via cargo bay or winch offers flexibility for transporting essential equipment, medical supplies, and communication tools. Utilizing this drone allows for swift delivery of essential resources to remote or hazardous locations, offering crucial assistance to first responders while ensuring their safety and minimizing environmental impact. Unlike traditional wheeled vehicles that contribute to biomass degradation, this drone presents an eco-friendly alternative.
