Estonia revolutionises drone flying as FREQUENTIS state-of-the-art UTM suite is put into operation

Drone operators in Estonia can now fully utilise the Frequentis UTM suite covering services and applications, implemented for Estonian Air Navigation Services (EANS).

Users now have access to up-to-date drone flight information, can register themselves as operators and securely exchange data, monitor airspace conditions, file flight plans, and even apply for take-off clearance. This solution marks a significant milestone in the development of uncrewed aviation services in Estonia and will transform the drone flying experience.

“Uncrewed aviation and drone markets are growing fast. The UTM suite will support the development of uncrewed aviation, and this will enable drone services to thrive as we are able to increase efficient and safe access to the airspace. Frequentis was able to put the system into operation in just seven months,” says Ivar Värk, CEO of Estonian Air Navigation Services.

EANS is on track to be the common information services (CIS) CIS provider in Estoina and the newly implemented, cloud-based Frequentis UTM suite facilitates a CIS environment for all uncrewed aviation stakeholders. Its secure open protocol ensures seamless data exchange between government authorities, entrepreneurs, and drone operators. A standout feature of the new system is the drone map, which provides valuable insights into permanent and temporary flight restriction zones, permitted flight altitudes, flight registrations, and airspace monitoring.
