FAA Clears New York Drone Corridor for Sightless Flights
October 24, 2022
Last week the Federal Aviation Administration approved New York’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Test Site (NUAIR) to fly uncrewed drones without supervision across 50 miles of airspace within the state’s drone corridor.
In essence, this means that an uncrewed aircraft systems corridor operator can fly civilian drones from Syracuse International Airport to Griffiss International Airport in Rome, N.Y., without the need for “visual observers,” according to a statement from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office.
