Flying Drones Across International Borders

Lessons Learned from the Gulf of Finland (GOF) 2.0 Drone Trials

Among the many trials that the Gulf of Finland 2.0 (GOF 2.0) Integrated Urban Airspace Validation Consortium has conducted in recent months was a cross-border beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight from Helsinki, Finland to Tallinn in Estonia. This trial sought to test, validate, and collect data on how these types of operations can be conducted safely near live airports and in dense airspace.

Funded by the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, GOF 2.0 is providing Europe and the entire Drone Industry with valuable data and lessons learned. We spoke with Gokul Srinivasan, Director of Technology at Robots.Expert, a member of the consortium, to get an exclusive in-depth look into the trial.
