According to unmannedairspace.info, beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights are underway to support the development of Italy’s D-Flight platform that is dedicated to UTM. D-Flight aims to to enable the coexistence of traditional aviation and drones in Italy’s airspace.
During the second phase of the experimentation of D-Flight an electric drone transported biomedical items between the sampling center of Santa Marinella and the analysis center of Palidoro. This was one of the first demonstartions in Italy of biomedical products’ delivery.
The long-term goal is to extend the service to urban environment as well and to enable the simultaneous operation of multiple drones.
