The EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) has just released its long awaited U-Space Opinion. Few days after the Federal Aviation Administration ConOps update, another essential document for UTM is out. The objective of this U-Space opinion is to create and harmonize the necessary conditions for manned and unmanned aircrafts to operate safely in the U-Space airspace in order to prevent collisions between aircraft and to mitigate the air and ground risks. The U-Space regulatory framework is supported by simple and clear rules that are permitting safe aircraft operations in all areas and for all types of unmanned operations. This opinion is a first step in regulation that allows unmanned aircraft safely fly in the U-Space and let unmanned aircraft systems and U-Space technologies evolve.
Read here the U-Space opinion of EASA.
