Nov 22 / Drones: Realising the Uncrewed Aviation Revolution


Realising the Uncrewed Aviation Revolution

From transforming how urgent goods are moved around the world to surveying infrastructure in remote, dangerous environments and aiding accurate, rapid emergency response, uncrewed aviation has long promised to revolutionise our lives and the aviation industry.

But unleashing that potential means delivering safe and scalable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations, something that remains the biggest hurdle for the burgeoning uncrewed aviation sector to overcome.

A huge amount of progress has been made in the past two years through things like the UK Future Flight Challenge, but what are the technological, regulatory and operational boundaries that still exist? How can air traffic service providers work with the industry to integrate new airspace users and where are the opportunities for new services and solutions?

No one is better placed to discuss all this and much more than our panel for this month’s Altitude livestream.

Charles Tavner is the CEO of Flylogix, a pioneering company bringing together artificial intelligence, satellite communication and low-cost electronics to develop a new generation of smaller, more efficient, uncrewed aircraft.

Alongside Charles, we’re delighted to also be joined by Louisa Smith, Head of Aviation at Apian, a hugely exciting medical drone start-up aiming to deliver faster, smarter, greener healthcare that can improve patients’ health outcomes and staff well-being.

And with NATS’ Russell Porter, Head of UTM Stakeholder Engagement, in the host’s chair, it looks set to be an unmissable, fascinating discussion.
