November 1, 2017 - 1:08 pmARGUS International, Inc. is pleased to announce Untamed Aero Solutions has achieved the ARGUS Unmanned Gold Rating. The ARGUS Gold Rating is one of three ARGUS Ratings unmanned operators may achieve. The ARGUS Audit Standard was designed for commercial unmanned aircraft operations to assess their operational safety and was developed to focus on the operator’s efforts to conduct appropriate standardized operations for every mission. As the first audit of its kind, it creates a fully-vetted registry of commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems operators to support end-customer sourcing and due diligence requirements for internal operations and external vendor qualification. “Untamed Aero Solutions is honored to bestow a Gold rating from Argus. We pride ourselves on safety, education, and professionalism,” said Ryan Langlois, CEO of Untamed Aero Solutions. “Our Argus rating will help further our mission, and the FAA’s priority, of safe integration of UAS in the National Airspace System.” To become ARGUS Gold rated, unmanned operators must: be a legal entity with applicable insurance, have at least one UAS in operation, go through an in-depth historical safety analysis, have pilot backgrounds checked, and UAS procedures and processes validated. “We are happy to welcome Untamed Aero Solutions into the elite group of ARGUS Unmanned Rated Operators,” said Joe Moeggenberg, ARGUS CEO and Founder. “The goal of our Unmanned Registry is to promote a greater safety culture within the UAS industry through a list of commercial unmanned operators who have been fully-vetted by ARGUS professionals.” Over the last 20 years, the ARGUS Gold and Platinum Ratings Program has become the most recognized and respected source of quality assessments on aircraft charter operators, making ARGUS rated commercial operators the preferred choice for the largest and most sophisticated consumers in the world. The ARGUS Unmanned standard audit program provides the pathway for commercial UAS operators to achieve Platinum recognition.
