The Future of Flying – Commissioner Bulc's speech at the drones conference in Riga

"Drones must fly safely in all circumstances and must not harm people in the air or on the ground. Europe should develop safety rules focused on addressing the risk associated with operating a drone. Those rules must be proportionate to that risk. And they should be international, as much as possible. This basic regulatory framework should be put in place without delay, as from this year, in order to help the private sector to take well-informed investment decisions."
