This Innovation Hub paper (CAP1868) explores the background of UAS Traffic Management, related workstreams across government and industry, and the current positions of the CAA.
The paper also gives an appreciation of the scale and breadth of impact that the integration of UAS into UK airspace could have across the whole aviation ecosystem.
Regularly operating unmanned vehicles beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) of their operator is a key requirement to maximise the benefits that this technology can deliver.
This new Innovation Hub guide (CAP1861) introduces the fundamental principles of operating safely beyond visual line of sight, and describes the challenges that must be tackled in order to unlock the full potential for everyday flying such as inspection of infrastructure and deliveries.
The Novel Operation in a Specific Trial Area (NOSTrA) Approach (CAP1835) provides innovators with non-binding, good practice guidance on how to try out novel and innovative aviation technologies and operations in a sustainable manner, in UK airspace.
The Regulatory Lab anticipates and identifies specific legislative and regulatory barriers to innovation.
It utilises collaborative networks and shared information to develop regulatory frameworks and support legislative developments in areas of innovation.
The regulatory lab will:
We will publish our insights into the innovation landscape and the role emerging technologies and business models play in the aviation and travel sector.
These insights will be published via the innovation gateway and could include views on:
