ABSTRACT

The present document summarises the content of the presentations delivered during the 7th Florence Air Forum, offering short summaries of each presentation, and illustrating the main points made and matters treated.

Presentations were delivered by representatives of different types of stakeholders, who discussed the current status of the current situation of Drones Regulation and reacted to the following initial inputs:

  • How to ensure a Light-handed but effective regulatory approach that is able to keep up with evolving technology?
  • Where can drones fly and where not? Which rules of the air, which air traffic control procedures?
  • Enforcement – how can safety rules on drones help to enforce existing privacy, and security regulation nationally and locally?
