Permits for flights of unmanned aerial vehicles will begin to be issued in the Moscow region. The possibility of providing the service was approved by the Ministry of Transport and Road Infrastructure of the Moscow Region together with the Ministry of Public Administration, Information Technologies and Communications of the region. An application for permission to fly UAVs can be submitted on the regional portal of public services.
The service will be available to individuals, individual entrepreneurs and legal entities. The pilot areas, where the service will be launched earlier than anyone else, will be selected in the first quarter of 2021. It is planned to fully launch the provision of the service by July.
In January, Hover tested unmanned flying taxis in the closed arena of the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow.
