These two new apps (mobile and web based) allow drone operators to efficiently plan and operate a flight including the airspace subject to air traffic control. Drone operators will be able to know whether a skyguide approval is required or not for their operations. Such flights requiring skyguide approval will still need to trigger the standard skyguide’s Special Flight Office approval process. The U-Space App enable flight plan creation and submission and delivers up-to-date flight and regulatory information. The mobile app is available as of today for devices running on iOS and Android operating systems on the respective stores. All these services provided by the U-Space apps will be initially free of charge for the operators.
