A three-way collaboration between CAAS, EASA and AIRBUS

A three-way collaboration is in the works to help advance the safety of unmanned aircraft systems in urban environments. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Airbus have agreed to collaborate, in hopes of developing a safety standard, and regulatory requirements for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in urban environments. Also involved in this, is The tripartite Project Document, which comprises the key components of this collaboration signed by all three representatives from CAAS, EASA and Airbus.


 

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is the centrepiece of the European Union’s strategy for aviation safety. EASA’s mission is to promote and achieve the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. Based in Cologne, the Agency currently employs more than 750 experts and administrators from all over Europe.

 

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017 it generated revenues of €59 billion restated for IFRS 15 and employed a workforce of around 129,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners from 100 to more than 600 seats. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as one of the world’s leading space companies.
