From 23rd to 25th March 2015, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will hold the first truly global Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Symposium, titled “Remotely piloted or piloted: sharing one aerospace system” at its headquarters in Montreal, Canada.
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 aerospace system. All participants will leave with a greater understanding of the complex issues that need to be addressed collectively to facilitate integration.
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.
All throughout the symposium, a centrally located exhibition area will permit to present the latest solutions in RPAS, technology and services. The online registration soon be available.
