The news of Trinity F90+ receiving the EASA C3 certification is finally out. This significant event occurred on October 25th, 2022, when Trinity F90+ received the EASA C3 certification for the EU drone class. The certification also allows take-off weight of over 4 kg.
The C3 certification is mandatory in the EU member states for UAVs purchased from January 1st, 2024. Trinity F90+ has prepared itself to comply with this mandatory requirement way ahead of schedule. The certificate recognizes Quantum-System’s commitment to supplying cutting-edge technology. At the same time, they are fully compliant with the complex regulatory framework in existence for UAVs.
For C3 compliance, all Trinity F90+ users will be eligible to upgrade their systems. The UAVs sold before January 1st, 2024, will be allowed to operate legally in the A3 category in Europe. Hence, the upgrade is fully voluntary. In order to receive the class C3 label for Trinity F90+, Quantum-Systems collaborated with Spanish Alter Technology Group (TUV Nord) to ensure compliance with the C3 class requirements.
Alter Technology Group, part of the TUV Nord Group, is an accredited and notified body of the EASA for drone classification and CE declarations.
