EASA and the European Commission have jointly prepared a draft Opinion for a U-space regulatory framework. This deliverable follows the conclusions of the Declaration at the High Level Conference on Drones in December 2018 that priority is given to develop an 'institutional framework for a competitive U-space services market and how drones need to be operated in the Single European Sky'.
For the development of this draft Opinion, 2 consultations were held, one in May 2019 on the principles and another in July 2019, on a very preliminary draft regulatory text and with U-space stakeholders, representatives of the authorities and experts from the UAS industry. Now, the revised draft regulatory text included in a draft Opinion will be submitted to the EASA advisory bodies' consultation beginning of October 2019. Because the specific drone operators/organisations and U-space stakeholders are not all represented in the EASA Advisory Bodies, EASA would also like to receive the feedback from such stakeholders.
The aim of this workshop is to present the revised draft regulatory proposal and consult with the specific drone operators/organisations and U-space stakeholders in order to finalise EASA's Opinion on U-space to the European Commission by end November 2019.
This workshop is only open to drone operators/organisations and U-space stakeholders, exclusively.
