DJI Qualified Entities Program (QEP)

Conduct Public Safety Missions without Geo-Fencing Restrictions

The Qualified Entities Program (QEP) allows Government and Public Safety entities to have their DJI drone's altitude and geo-fencing limitations unlocked, so that they can conduct their drone operations without restrictions for a long period of time.

Why choose QEP over a regular FlySafe unlock?

QEP provides government and public safety entities geo and altitude unlock permissions for a longer period of time vs. a regular unlock request and can also cover a larger area.

Who can apply for the QEP Progam?

The QEP Program is designed for Government and Public Safety Entities (e.g. Fire Service, Search and Rescue, Coast Guard, Civil Defense, Law Enforcement, Border Control, etc.). If you are unsure if your organization qualifies please email
