Draft Commission Implementing Regulation for Unmanned Aircraft Operations

Proposals from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for a unified set of drone rules for all EU countries gained a final adoption (approval) at the end of February. Although substantially revised it follows the general principles published by EASA in February 2018 in its Opinion 2018-02.  The Implementing Regulation (rules) is expected to be published in early summer 2019 and will become applicable 12 months later (June 2020).  Once the final regulation is published this summer we will provide details on UK adoption plans.
