Drones of the future


UAS – the unmanned aviation industry – opens up new areas of business application and takes advantage of the specific charakteristics of small, light and flexible applications in new areas of use cases. The legislation has followed and opens the way to open up new flight areas gradually. From local flying in line of sight (VLOS), the way to fly outside the visual line of sight (BVLOS) is now possible.
Thanks to the support of the UAV DACH e.V., the Association for unmanned aviation, the framework of conditions for a positive future perspective of the drone industry are developing positively. New business cases are emerging and will also be financially interesting and viable – a clear professionalisation is taking place and both well-known companies from general aviation as well as a lot of highly innovative start-ups take care of these important and interesting future markets with daily new use cases. The UAV DACH e.V. is the experienced partner and companion for the professional B2B market in the drone industry and professional drone users.
At the exhibition AERODrones UAS Expo, UAS and drones today also find their permanent place within the framework of Aero Friedrichshafen as a further way of use in extension to general aviation. Manned and unmanned aircraft are complementary to each other and thus form the current market of general aviation perfectly.
