Stay tuned for more information on upcoming events in this new series; Mission Debrief.
The Virginia Department of Aviation (DOAV), together with partners in the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT), and Advanced Technology Applications (ATA, LLC), has developed a novel approach for information sharing. The Virginia Flight Information Exchange (VA- FIX) is Virginia's step toward the future of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) by creating an authoritative Supplemental Data Service Provider (SDSP) that leverages the wealth of information in state and local government to help UAS operations and UAS Service Suppliers plan and conduct safe, effective operations. VA- FIX is part of Virginia's approach to address key policy and safety concerns at the state and local level while also maintaining a UAS airspace that is one of the most free and open in the nation.
