Authorities in Israel permitted to close lower airspace for drone operations accompanied by UTM services

A new law passed in Israel allows local and national authorities to temporarily close lower airspaces to facilitate official, large-scale drone operations. As part of the ruling, authorities that choose to invoke this power will have to use an approved UTM system.

The new law is intended to ensure public safety during emergencies and planned events. As such, the Civil Aviation Authority Israel (CAAI) has recognized that operating under a UTM system is necessary to coordinate drone flights, prevent collisions and crashes, and stop privately-owned drones from interfering in official operations.

The CAAI has approved a number of UTM service providers. High Lander’s Universal UTM is among those selected as an approved provider. High Lander works closely with the CAAI as part of the INDI drone initiative.
