🇬🇧 First Flights in EU Project Implementing Movement of Drones Over Cities Started in Poland
A first series of test flights with drones got underway in November in Rzeszów, Poland as part of the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) large-scale demonstration. The project is co-funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme within the framework of the SESAR Joint Undertaking, an EU public-private partnership that coordinates all air traffic management research and innovation activities. Poland is one of the four EU countries where the trial flights are conducted.
The flights in Poland are carried out by Dronehub – the European leader in the drone-in-a-box systems – with the support of Honeywell, which provides equipment and sensors for drones, and the Altitude Angel, responsible for the software. These companies are part of the Uspace4UAM consortium, which was selected for drone flights in urban conditions in four European countries: Poland, Czech Republic, Great Britain, and Spain. The project aims to enable the safe integration of urban air mobility, including flights with autonomous drones, in the airspace of the European Union.(…)
