The Single European Sky (SES) initiative aims to make EU airspace less fragmented and to improve air traffic management in terms of safety, capacity, cost-efficiency and the environment. Its current regulatory framework is based on two legislative packages: SES I (adopted in 2004), which set the principal legal framework, and SES II (adopted in 2009), which aimed to tackle substantial air traffic growth, increase safety, and reduce costs and delays and the impact of air traffic on the environment ...

Often labelled as one of today's main disruptive technologies, drones have indeed earned this label by prompting a fundamental rethinking of business models, existing laws, safety and security standards, the future of transport, and modern warfare. The European Union (EU) recognises the opportunities that drones offer and sees them as opening a new chapter in the history of aerospace. The EU aviation strategy provides guidance for exploring new and emerging technologies, and encourages the integration ...

In 2016, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation establishing a certification system for aviation security screening equipment. The proposal sought ‘to contribute to the proper functioning of the EU internal market and to increase the global competitiveness of the EU industry by establishing an EU certification system for aviation security equipment’. This system was to be based on EU type-approval and issuance of a certificate of conformity by manufacturers, which would have ...

This study – commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the JURI Committee – analyses existing European and national legislation on the regulation of drones for civil use, discussing how they are defined and classified, whether certification and registration is required, how liability is apportioned between the subjects involved, and if compulsory insurance is provided for. Finally, on the basis of a risk-management ...

New civil aviation safety rules

Briefing 15-10-2018

Flying remains one of the safest forms of transport, and the EU's accident rate is lower than in the rest of the world. However, it cannot automatically be assumed that such performance will continue, as global air traffic is forecast to double over the next 20 years. New technologies, such as unmanned aircraft (drones), are also appearing in European skies, which require adaption of the current regulatory framework. In December 2015, the European Commission proposed to update aviation safety rules ...

Common rules in the field of civil aviation

Mad-Daqqa t''Għajn 06-06-2018

As air traffic is growing and new technologies such as unmanned aircraft are appearing in the skies, the European Union has decided to adapt its civil aviation rules. In December 2015, the European Commission presented a proposal for a regulation on civil aviation safety and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which would repeal the 2008 regulation on the same topic. Two years later, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the new rules. The provisional ...

It-trasport bl-ajru: Is-sigurtà tal-avjazzjoni ċivili

Skedi Informattivi dwar l-UE 01-07-2017

Is-sigurtà tal-avjazzjoni (li hija differenti mis-sikurezza tal-avjazzjoni[1]) teżisti biex tipprevjeni atti malizzjużi kontra l-ajruplani, il-passiġġieri u l-ekwipaġġ tagħhom. Wara l-attakki terribbli tal-2001, l-UE adottat sett ta' regoli dwar is-sigurtà għas-salvagwardja tal-avjazzjoni ċivili. Dawn ir-regoli jiġu aġġornati regolarment biex jindirizzaw ir-riskji li qed jevolvu. L-Istati Membri jżommu d-dritt li japplikaw miżuri aktar stretti.
