JARUS invites comments on updated SORA Annex A operations manual for drone operations

The Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) has published a new version of ‘SORA Annex A’ for consultation following approval by WG-SRM. The deadline to submit comments is 7 April 2022.
The new SORA Annex A will provide the instructions to develop an operation manual based on the provisions derived by the operational safety objectives (OSOs). It aims to simplify the process.

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will work with JARUS to address all comments and then EASA plans to introduce this SORA Annex A in the European regulatory framework, estimated by the end of 2022. When adopted, this new SORA Annex A will replace the current version of SORA Annex A and will be the only guidance to develop an operation manual for drone operations.

All documents published for External Consultation must go through the following process:

  1. Before documents are published, the draft is sent out to the JARUS members for Internal Consultation. Once comments are gathered, the JARUS Plenary Team must approve the final document published on the website for External Consultation.
  2. The deadline has to be respected, and access to the tool will be closed the day after.
  3. Working Group Leaders will review the comments made and will discuss them with the other working group members.
  4. Only comments submitted online within the deadline will be considered.
