​ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
 

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will convene the first Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Symposium, titled “Remotely piloted or piloted: sharing one aviation system” at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada from 23 to 25 March 2015.  

  

 
A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR STATES, INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS
AND STAKEHOLDERS
 
The Symposium will provide a unique opportunity for States, international organizations and stakeholders to identify how existing aviation rules need to evolve to meet the challenges involved in welcoming the RPAS community and to examine alignment between ongoing RPAS development and supporting regulatory provisions. The symposium will also showcase the opportunities created by the integration of RPAS into the global civil aviation system. All participants will leave with a greater understanding of the complex issues that need to be addressed, collectively, to facilitate integration.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The event is expected to attract a wide variety of experts from rule-making authorities, air navigation service providers, operators, industry partners, international organizations, manufacturers, researchers and other stakeholders to share knowledge and experiences.

 

An industry exhibit will showcase the breadth of existing technologies and the thriving research and development activities currently underscoring this new sector of the aviation industry.
