Australia, Belgium and Norway top the list of countries most prepared for drone regulation and applications according to the latest report published by Drone Industry Insights. The Drone Regulation Report 2022 is a comprehensive overview and analysis of global drone regulations as well as their impact on the drone industry.
The Drone Readiness Index is a key component of the Drone Regulation Report since it provides a quantitative analysis of qualitative drone regulations. Regulations are analysed based on six key metrics: applicability, human resources, administrative infrastructure, operational limits, airspace integration and social acceptance. The report provides country profiles for 21 of the most influential drone markets around the world.
Contained within the 83-page report is an outline how drone regulations are made what sorts of challenges drone regulators face. It delves deeper into European and international drone regulations by explaining how EASA and other EU regulatory bodies work in conjunction with national regulations for basic and advanced drone operations. The report also provides readers with an overview of emerging drone regulation including UTM systems and drone certification. This is followed by an analysis of drone regulation outlook, challenges and trends, which provide insights on the key factors affecting regulation as well as its converse: the key factors that regulations themselves affect. Included is also at timeline of upcoming commercial drone regulations.
Key findings include:
- The lastest drone regulations pave the way for more BVLOS, OOP and at-night operations
- Both the FAA and EASA have continued to develop and implement path-leading regulations for drone technology
- International drone standards for basic and advanced operations will take effect in the next 5 years to allow for better leveraging of drone technology
- Regulators in several countries besides the FAA and EASA will look to implement new rules to allow for more drone operations to take place
