Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Temporary Danger Area (TDA), for which a scaled airspace change process applies and a change level is not applicable. The detailed process requirements are published in the Temporary Danger Area Policy Statement.

Skylift UAV Limited are undertaking a 3-month proof of concept on behalf of Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust to transport packages containing diagnostic swabs and blood samples between medical sites in support of the COVID-19 response using unmanned aircraft. To that end, beyond visual line of sight operations will be required and, in accordance with CAP 1915, such operations must be conducted within segregated airspace. CAP 1915 also states that the primary method for achieving this airspace is by application for a Temporary Danger Area (TDA). Skylift UAV Limited therefore require the establishment of a TDA to segregate their operations accordingly.
