EASA adopts M2 Means of Compliance for mitigation means, for example parachute recovery systems

The European Aviation Safety Agency has adopted and published the means of compliance for mitigation means M2 Ref. AMC to article 11 of Regulation 2019/947, following the extended period of consultation which ended in March 2023.

The publication opens the door to operations in populated areas under SORA and allows parachute and drone manufacturers to make their product compliant for operations in urban environment.

The document is addressed to UAS operators, UAS manufacturers, mitigation means manufacturers (typically but not only: parachute recovery systems) and is made of:

  • Chapter 1: conceptual clarification of the nominal integrity target associated with medium robustness M2;
  • Chapter 2: General Means of Compliance for M2 medium robustness mitigation means. An applicant may use this chapter to define the technical approach for its project by proposing to the competent authority a specific MoC for M2 medium integrity;
  • Chapter 3: An initial set of example ways to apply the general MoC.

Chapter 2 is particularly addressed to organizations designing the UAS and/or the mitigation means, chapter 3 is focused on operators.

The document is available here
