U-space service provider (USSP) and uncrewed traffic management (UTM) Airwayz reports license approval from the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) to operate USSP services in Israel. Airways “is now the first provider authorized to operate USSP services throughout Israel” according to the company.
Since CAAI announced recently that commercial drone operations must operate through a USSP, Airwayz has already managed significant drone activities, says the provider in a LinkedIn post. The company has been working with regulator since January 2021 when Israel launched a USD15.7 million public-private Israel National Drone Initiative (INDI).
INDI is a joint initiative of the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA), Ayalon Highways Co LTD, Civil Aviation Authority of Israel, Israel Ministry of Transportation, and Israel Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) with the support of the World Economic Forum.
