Tune in to this DroneTalks interview with Francine Zimmermann, Director Aviation Policy and Strategy Division at Federal Office of Civil Aviation Switzerland (FOCA). We discuss the Swiss drone industry market as one of the largest in the world per capita and reveal Switzerland’s plan to implement the European drone regulations 2019/945 and 2019/947.
We explore why Switzerland is a top priority market for drone delivery companies and what non-swiss operators can expect from the country regarding the upcoming European U-space regulation: what is possible in Switzerland today? What will be possible in the coming years for BVLOS and advanced risk assessment practices? What is the Swiss U-Space Implementation SUSI focus?
Finally, Francine reveals her plans for integrating drones, UTM and U-space innovative technologies within the broader aviation system and her vision to develop policies that provide fair access to the airspace to everyone.
