The role of airspace assessment is to define the areas where aircraft can safely operate in without causing disruptions to airspace. As Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are becoming ever more prevalent, it is necessary to define how can UAS and manned aviation coexist in a single airspace.
To address this, we organised a webinar on airspace assessment for UAS.
Our online event will be an opportunity to share ideas on how to better integrate UAS into airspace. The webinar addressed:
classes of areas, sites or activities to take into account when an airspace assessment is performed,
roles and responsibilities and
common reference data and communication, navigation and surveillance requirements
The event is now over, but you can always join our next one on 16 April 2016.
We will host this webinar via WebEx. Once you have registered, our organisers will send you a link to the conference. If you do not know how to join a WebEx conference, watch this video:
This joint EUROCONTROL-EASA webinar is part of a reocurring series of three such events with the aim to discuss the problems associated with integrating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the airspace along with manned aviation. The series focuses on three distinct issues:
