As you are probably aware, the strategy developed by the European Commission to support the progressive development of the market of civil drones' applications in Europe while addressing concerns about safety, security, privacy, liability and public acceptance has been discussed at the occasion of a conference organised on 5 - 6 March 2015 by the Ministry of Transport of Latvia and the Civil Aviation Agency of Latvia, in cooperation with the European Commission, during the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. At this occasion, this strategy has been widely endorsed by the aviation community and summarized in the Riga Declaration made public at the end of the Conference.
You have now the opportunity to show your support to this strategy by signing-up the Riga Declaration here.
