Implementation of European Drone Regulations - Status Quo and Assessment

Janke, Christian; Uijt de Haag, Maarten

The fast evolution of drone technology as well as the ubiquitous adoption from private and commercial users lead to the necessity to introduce new regulations covering the operations of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in European Member states. The regulations implemented rules for multiple scenarios of normal and complex UAS operations as well as the collection of registration data from remote pilots and Operators. This research project tried for the first time to determine the status quo of the adoption of the novel EASA regulations of drones within the European members states. Data from National Aviation Authorities has been collected, accumulated, and analyzed towards qualitative and quantitative features.
