The first flight tests to mix unmanned drones with regular manned air traffic in UK airspace from an aerodrome is to run at the recently-launched Aircraft Innovation Centre in Goodwod, Sussex early next year, after the UK Government awarded funding for the project.

The live trial will demonstrate Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operations in non-segregated airspace and involves drone operations management company ANRA Technologies, air traffic management company Trax International, done avionics supplier uAvionix and flight-tracking provider Plane Finder.
