About this initiative

Summary

The Commission proposes to extend the scope of the European Aviation Safety rules to all drones regardless of weight. It intends to propose operational requirements and procedures for certain types of drone operations, on the basis of the opinion that the Agency is expected to transmit in early 2018. This opinion will be supported by an impact assessment and stakeholder consultations. In addition, the Commission will launch a public consultation prior to the adoption of these rules.

    DAE supports the adoption of the Delegated Act (DA) and Implementing Rule (IR), and the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM). However, DAE is concerned the authority bestowed upon Member States (MS) in the IR jeopardizes a single EU drone framework. DAE supports the IR framework, as well as the open category subcategories and drone weight classifications. DAE also supports the SORA methodology, as well as the JARUS...
