Drone planes: rules for flying across Europe change
EASA presents the new ones at "Roma Drone Conference"
Europe has set new rules for flying with drone aircraft. The text of the European single regulation, based on the proposals developed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), has been approved by its Committee, which also includes the ENAC (Italian Civil Aviation Authority). The rules introduce several innovations, including the same requirements for professional or amateur operations and streamlined procedures for pilots' training. In view of the publication in the Official European Gazette, scheduled for next June, EASA has selected Italy for the preview of the presentation of the regulation: it will be illustrated in detail in the next "Rome Drone Conference 2019", sixth edition of the professional event on remote piloted systems, which will take place on Monday 18 March in Rome at the Center Saint-Louis Auditorium.
The European regulation will be adopted after translation into the various languages of the European Union and after the European Parliament has completed the control of the second part of the text, the delegated acts governing the drone classes and the EC mark. After that, in June the regulation will be published in the Official Journal and will come into force after 20 days, with the obligation to apply after exactly 12 months.
"Roma Drone Conference 2019" has received numerous supports, including Enac, Ansv (Italian Flight Safety Agency), Cira (Italian Aerospace Research Center) and the drone industry associations.
