Can EU act on UAV regulation?

Can we act in unison?

Can EASA work with each country to come up with legislation acceptable to all EU member states? If our own individual countries are unable to advance regulation to keep up with US legislation it seems unlikely that we are going to see a united set of regulations in the near future.

After all, although commercial operators in the UK must be certified and have Operation Manuals commensurate with CAA legislation, hobbyists are still largely unfettered by rules and regulations.

With the technology for UAVs advancing at a helter skelter pace, it seems more likely that a drone will land on the moon than regulations be introduced which can accommodate all our needs.


Regulations on drone use failing to take flight almost one year later

Almost a year has passed since the authorities published a draft notice on the use of drones but, in spite of public consultation, the regulations have not been finalised yet.

Originally, the proposed legal notice was open for public consultation until March 31, 2015. Under this proposed notice, drone use would be limited to designated areas and specific flight levels, considering the proximity of any aerodrome, aircraft flight paths and other dangers to aviation, persons or property.

The reaction of drone operators and hobbyists to the proposed legal notice was not favourable. During a public consultation meeting held on February 28, 2015, operators and hobbyists expressed their concern over the proposed system of designated areas, weight classification, and the burden of obtaining insurance coverage.

On July 6, 2015, Captain Charles Pace, a member of the Transport Malta board, told the Times of Malta that following the public consultation on the proposed legal notice, changes were being considered, including amending a blanket ban on flights within 7.5 kilometres of the airport. Captain Pace had also said that changes would be made to clearly distinguish between hobbyists and commercial operators.

On October 5, 2015, in reply to a parliamentary question, Justice Minister Owen Bonnici said that another public consultation would be held. However, in comments given to the Times of Malta, a Transport Malta spokesperson said that no second public consultation was held or was planned to be held.
