"EASA HLC on drones - UAM Becoming a Reality"
Day 1: Plenary panel discussions
The first day of the conference - Tuesday March 29 - is dedicated to the new reality of UAM, the importance of societal acceptance, working in partnership with all the stakeholders and the identification of the key building blocks of UAM. The official opening by Patrick Ky will be followed by keynote speeches delivered by high level representatives of the European Commission, National Governments and industry active in UAM. Three panel discussions on the central theme are planned in the afternoon.
Day 2: Interactive technical workshops
The second day of the conference - Wednesday March 30 - will be devoted to more detailed technical workshops, giving attendees opportunities to discuss their questions in an open Q&A setting. Subjects under discussion will be, for example, the application of the guidelines related to design verification of UAS, technical specifications on vertiports, U-space implementation in an UAM environment together with ATM integration of manned UAM vehicles and licensing and operational requirements for UAM operators.
The two-day EASA High Level Conference on Drones is hosted by RAI together with the Amsterdam Drone Week (ADW) which is the global platform for sharing knowledge on current solutions, innovation and crucial regulation pertaining to Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) industry. During the three days you will have access to the ADW Hybrid, the EASA High Level Conference on Drones and you will be able to connect through ADW Matchmaking with selected delegates, speakers and partners. During ADW you can visit the EASA High Level Conference (HLC) on Drones and ADW Hybrid 29 - 31 March 2022.
Note: In the context of the current war in Ukraine, please understand that changes to the programme may need to be made at short notice, in particular due to any conflicting priorities which may arise.
EASA would like to invite participants to submit any questions they may have in advance, to allow the panelists and moderators to consider these in advance. This is particularly the case for the technical workshops, as the answer to more detailed questions may take some time to prepare. You can submit your questions no later than March 20, 2022 via Slido using the following links and codes:
