DroneTalks exclusive podcast interview with Mark Watson, Head of UTM Service at NATS


How will the rapid emergence of eVTOLs and other UAVs get integrated with the current ATM policies of the UK? What will the ‘’Future Flight Programme’’ of the UK CAA bring on the table? What are the recent UTM and airspace modernization policies of the UK CAA? How will these policies be affected by the completion of the Brexit process in the medium run? At Amsterdam Drone Week, we welcomed Mark Watson, Head of UTM Service Integration at NATS to DroneTalk’s Media Booth, and our CEO & Co-Founder Eszter Kovacs asked him pivotal questions about the future of UTM policies in the UK.
