UAVDeploy-Airspace NO DATE.png

In the next few years the FAA, together with almost every other regulator in the world, will allow unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and urban air mobility (UAMs) aircraft to share the national airspace (NAS) with traditional manned aviation.

Even though most of the technology that we need to make this a reality is already here and tested in controlled environments, maintaining the current level of safety of commercial aviation is paramount and efforts will have to be taken to ensure that these non-traditional aircrafts can perform their function without affecting or overburdening the system.

In this webinar we will address the most pressing issues preventing a massive deployment of UAV's in controlled airspace.

Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) and Air Traffic Control (ATC)

  • Flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) need to be legal for unmanned vehicles. Under current Part 107, only flights within visual range of the pilot are allowed. There are waivers and exceptions, but for a massive deployment, we need a revised legislation that would allow these flights without special permission.​​​​​

  • Parachute recovery systems. Equipping every drone (and perhaps UAM) with this feature will be costly but will go a long way to help the FAA advance the cause of BVLOS.
