Drones represent a tremendous opportunity for Europe’s aeronautical manufacturing industry,
especially for SMEs, and for the many aviation and non-aviation basinesses that will be able to
integrate drones into their activities, and increase their efficiency and competitiveness. Today’s
aviation rules are however not adapted to drones whose full economic potential will only be unleashed if a number of legitimate concerns are addressed, the first of which is safety. That is why the European Commission proposed to set up an EU-wide framework for drones.
