SOARIZON by Thales to support CAA Regulatory Sandbox trials alongside Skyports
The SOARIZON by Thales, and Thales UK have been selected to support Regulatory Sandbox trials for drone deliveries in non-segregated airspace.
"Delivery drone service provider Skyports has announced today that it has been accepted into the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) Regulatory Sandbox to trial beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights in non-segregated airspace.
The Regulatory Sandbox is a programme established by the UK CAA to create an environment where innovation in aviation can be explored in line with UK CAA core principles of safety, security and consumer protection.
