Empire Unmanned is an Idaho company venture between Empire Airlines of Hayden, ID; ADAVSO of Star, Idaho; and Blair Farms of Kendrick, ID. ADAVSO was the first entity in the U.S. to be granted a Section 333 exemption to fly UAS commercially for agriculture by the FAA.

ADAVSO, Empire Airlines and Blair Farms have been original members of the Idaho UAS Working Group – a statewide network of businesses, universities, and state and federal government organizations – which is the driving force behind advancing UAS interests throughout Idaho and the region.
