The new test programme called AirborneBeyond is offering access to various test ranges including coordinated UAS fight testing at certified aviation facilities in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and other select locations throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. Airborne Response launched the programme to offer additional flight-testing options for UAS manufacturers and enterprise users with specialised requirements. Some of the characteristics of the available airspace include over 100 nm distances, operating ceilings up to 30,000 ft, asphalt runways, air traffic control towers and an array of local engineering and fabricating services.
Andy Jaques, Vice President of International Operations for Airborne Response said: “UAS manufacturers and specialized enterprise customers will now have a fast-track option to test developmental aircraft and BVLOS operations within foreign airspace jurisdictions,” The programme is designed to provide a single-point of contact for clients who require assistance coordinating UAS testing options across a range of terrain and operating environments.
A large Spanish UAS manufacturer recently completed their initial testing phase which validated the proof-of-concept for the programme according to suasnews. Airborne Response also plans to expand AirborneBeyond with the assistance of local partners throughout the Western Hemisphere.
