Drone flight area request
UAV Operator Flight Area Request Form
During the first stage of the U-Space Airspace Prototype at Maasvlakte/Europoort (area outside CTR), we enable manual request submission for drone operators who haven’t started working with a UAV Operating System (therefore can’t implement the SDK/APIs at this stage).
This form enables submission request for a predefined flight area and time where an organization has an intention to fly during UDP.
Once this form is submitted, Port of Rotterdam Airspace Managers will:
- Review and insert the requested area to the UTM system, verifying priorities.
- If the requested area was found to be valid, it will be confirmed by an email message during working hours; Monday - Friday 9:00-17:00.
- If a higher priority operation will be sent before or after confirmation, the confirmation may be cancelled.
- The Airspace Managers will check on the basis of your OA whether the flight request fits within your ILT permit.
Operation liability remains with the UAV operator including the responsibility for proximity and safety distances between drones, with manned traffic, vessels and infrastructure.
All details provided in the form will be handled only for the purpose of the U-Space Airspace Prototype, with discretion and in line with our privacy statement. All details will be deleted at the end of the 2-year prototype period.
Thank you for your cooperation,
