The first coordinated beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight in unsegregated airspace took place in Poland on 18 February 2019.
The flight took place in the Warsaw flight information region (FIR), coordinated by the UAV Operations Department in Poland’s air navigation service provider PANSA according to the new rules for drone operations in unsegregated airspace, introduced in February 2019.
A NOTAM was issued for the flight – the first ever NOTAM issued for a flight of unmanned aircraft with a take-off mass less than 25kg used in BVLOS operations in an unsegregated airspace, according to a LinkedIn post by Pawel Korzec, Co-founder and CEO at DroneRadar.
