This paper presents a solution for creating dynamic flight plans for drones. The number of drones is expected to increase dramatically, and there will be a demand for drone traffic planning solutions. The approach used here is based on a multidimensional grid with fixed top-level paths and lower-level paths used for local traffic between the departure and arrival points and the top-level paths. Flight plans may change dynamically if disruptions happen. The proposed solution includes the establishment of temporary no-fly zones and priority traffic.
