    Concerning Drone Regulations in the EU

    In the European Union, drone regulations have been established to ensure the safe and responsible use of drones in the airspace. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has set out drone regulations that classify drones into three categories based on their risk – open, specific, and certified. With the emergence of delivery drones like DJI’s new FlyCart 30, the specific category becomes more and more relevant to fly in cities. If you’re interested in support through the authorization process, compliance with JARUS SORA, and elaborating the required documentation, contact UASolutions, as we are dedicated to democratizing access to the skies and creating value.
