Alliance Growth Strengthens Call for Swift and Harmonised Implementation of Pan-European Drone Regulatory Framework

 

BRUSSELS – 30 April 2019 – Drone Alliance Europe (DAE) is pleased to announce that Azur Drones has joined the Alliance as an Associate Member. Growth in Alliance membership coincides with the European Commission’s forthcoming formal publication of the Delegated and Implementing Regulations governing aspects of drone certification and operations.

Founded in 2012, Azur Drones developed Europe’s leading fully autonomous drone in a box solution to assist in safety and security operations. It is also the first company to receive authorization for autonomous drone flight from the French Directorate-General for Civil Aviation (DGAC).

Azur Drones’ membership in DAE strengthens the Alliance’s leadership as the European Commission and EASA work to formally publish the Implementing and Delegated Regulations as well as continue work on U-Space and the Specific and Certified categories. Continued growth in membership comes at a critical juncture when a unified call for harmonised implementation of drone regulations across all Member States is needed most. DAE looks forward to working with the Azur Drones team to ensure continued growth of the European commercial drone market,” DAE Executive Director Christoph Raab stated. 

The fully autonomous drone industry has tremendous growth potential, but is still experiencing regulatory barriers which hamper its development. Azur Drones is delighted to join forces with DAE to pursue a forward-leaning regulatory framework. With DAE support, Azur Drones will promote new types of autonomous operations within European regulatory authorities and share its French experience at the international level,” Azur Drones CEO Jean-Marc Crépin added.
