U-space service provider Airspace Link and Texas’ Lone Star UAS Center have announced a partnership to launch the FlySafe Program, powered by AirHub, to enhance the safety and capabilities of drone operations within their local communities. Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence and Innovation (LSUASC) is a research facility dedicated to the innovation and safety of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) flights throughout the US.
The FlySafe Program enables students, residents, and visitors to understand Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone rules, local advisories, ground risk hazards, and additional information to help them plan safer and compliant flights when operating in the area. Pilots can access the data here.
Often referred to as the “Smart Maps for Drones,” Airspace Link’s FlySafe Program is designed to help establish two-way communication for drone pilots and their communities to ensure operations are in harmony with the community providing near-instant authorizations when operating in controlled airspace.
Michael Sanders, Executive Director for LSUASC, says “The partnership between LSUASC and Airspace Link is the next innovation to enhance our connection with the community. It will enable shared understanding of operations happening in the airspaces, publication of advisories and data directly to pilots, increased pilot situational awareness, and provides for two-way information sharing that hasn’t existed before at this level.”
LSUASC advances the integration of UAS and Autonomous Aviation (AAV) technologies across educational, public, and commercial agency interests; provides an economic stimulus to attract related industry partners to the State of Texas, and informs governing agencies on UAS and AAV operations in the National Airspace System (NAS). LSUASC is one of seven Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) UAS test sites in the United States.
