New York’s Completed 50-Mile Drone Corridor

Recommended Posts

Today, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the completion of the state-supported, 50-mile Unmanned Aircraft System Corridor, after three years of development and a $30 million state investment. The corridor runs from Central New York to the Mohawk Valley and is the most advanced drone testing corridor in the U.S.

In addition, Governor Cuomo also announced that an 8-mile segment of the corridor has been approved for beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone operations, which includes the NUAIR New York UAS Test Site. This is the first "true" BVLOS authority granted to the Test Site, which allows unmanned aircraft testing without the need for ground-based observers.

Learn about how the BVLOS approval was obtained and what companies can do to utilize the new 50-mile corridor in today's post: New York’s Completed 50-Mile Drone Corridor: “Fly as Far as the Eye Can See, and then a Little More”

There are seven UAS Test Sites across the nation, but none as robust as New York’s newly completed corridor. What do you think of New York’s 50-mile drone corridor? Comment below to chime in.

This is really great to see come to fruition, we applaud this kind of open mindset and innovation. This is wonderful development and a big step forward for the sUAS industry. I hope other states take similar steps to move this forward.
