The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration recently passed a proposal that BVLOS long range fixed wing drones would gain right-of-way for other aircraft in low-altitude corridors established for long-haul deliveries and other commercial services.

An advisory panel told the FAA in its report that allowing flight beyond the line of sight of ground operators would require computerized collision avoidance systems, new qualifications for drone pilots and a 400-foot (122-meter) range from the ground. Modified rules for in-flight.

The recommendations call for sweeping changes to FAA rules that now allow pilots who have difficulty seeing drones to avoid the burden of other aircraft. They also called on aviation agencies to create a new set of regulations to minimise the risk of long-range flights on unmanned aircraft to avoid collisions.

"The industry is ready and willing to provide resources, technology and expertise" to facilitate over-the-horizon drone flying, the report said.

Several BVLOS long range fixed wing drones companies, including Alphabet Inc.'s Wing LLC and United Parcel Service Inc., have received clearance from the FAA to autonomously fly drones in controlled test environments outside the field of vision of ground operators, but no rules allow it Such flights are carried out on a regular basis.

Creating such regulations is key to allowing the kind of drone-based commerce envisioned by Wing, UPS, Inc's Prime Air and others.
