Drone Air Lanes

Drone adoption will push the development of “air lanes” for both manned and unmanned aircraft where different types of aerial vehicles are grouped into categories and traffic lanes. NASA recently completed the development of a traffic management ecosystem for aerial devices that fly under 400 feet. The Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) has been handed off to the Federal Aviation Administration for further development and implementation. Proactively constructing aerial infrastructure will let regulators relieve congestion, ensure safety and incorporate learnings from road and air travel. The development of regulation will be made at the city and state level because interoperability at a federal and global level will be less necessary for drone travel.
