EASA workshop to discuss proposed U-space regulations ahead of March deadline for comments

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is hosting an online workshop on 15 February 2022 on the content of the Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) 2012-14 relating to Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) for implementation of U-space services in Europe.

EASA published proposals in December 2021 to enable harmonised implementation of U-space airspaces and U-space services as well as certification of U-space service providers across the European airspace. The publication followed the adoption of the U-space regulatory package, which creates the conditions necessary for both drones and manned aircraft to operate safely in the U-space airspace. The development of AMC & GM is crucial as the U-space regulations only provide a high-level framework for the U-space to enable the first operations of UAS without specifying the necessary means on how to enable harmonised implementation of the U-space.

The proposed AMC & GM provide the means to facilitate the implementation of the U-space services and to support the safe traffic management of unmanned aircraft that can be integrated with manned aviation in all types of environment. Public comments need to be submitted by 15 March 2022.

The workshop aims to give stakeholders the opportunity to better understand the content of EASA’s proposed AMC/GM prior to the end of the commenting period.
