DRONES, UAS, RPAS

The new European Drone regulation is in force from the end of December 2020. The Drone operations, either for commercial or leisure purposes, are subject to the same conditions across Europe.

The integration of the new European provisions on drones into Swiss law has been postponed. Following the adoption of a motion by both chambers of parliament calling for the exclusion of traditional aeromodelling from the new EU provisions on drones, Switzerland must start negotiations with the EU. For this reason, Swiss law will continue to apply to drones and model aircraft until further notice.

Flying a drone commercially has an incredible business potential. The drone´s industry will create many benefits for our communities and has the opportunity to grow significantly over the coming years. To keep everyone safe and to make sure we share the airspace with everything else that flies, it is paramount to understand the new drone rules, regardless of whether it is used as a hobby or operated as part of a business (e.g. film making, crops dusting, etc).

Established in 2005, Swiss Aviation Consulting has a wide range of experience in manned aviation. Our goal is to channel all this knowledge to support the unmanned industry developments, ensuring the high safety standards on its operations.
