The idea of mainstream drone use implies both the development of practical rules to manage their operation as they move through airspace, and the development of safe and capable technologies and systems. Historically, Swiss aviation authorities have been open to new users and aircraft types accessing national airspace. This has encouraged innovation and helped with public acceptance.
As the rest of Europe enters a test phase, Switzerland positions itself as a world leader in drones traffic management with the Swiss U-space project, an ecosystem of public-private partnerships. Switzerland is once again at the forefront in terms of innovation and know-how in relation to emerging technologies.
