Deployment Scenario Title

IFR RPAS accommodation in airspace classes A to C

Deployment Scenario Description IFR RPAS accommodation in airspace classes A to C: the aim is to accommodate IFR RPAS in non-segregated airspace in the short term, in accordance with the drone roadmap in the Master Plan. The idea is to enable IFR RPAS operating from dedicated airfields to routinely operate in airspace classes A to C as general air traffic without a chase plane escort. Changes to ATC procedures, adaptations to flight planning processes, contingency measures, etc., are included in the development activity.
