  • Abstract

      On 29 November 2022, the European Commission published the EU’s Drone Strategy 2.0, which aimed at nothing less than giving a prognosis of drone usage around the year 2050, and the role of drones in the context of Europe’s planned mission of carbon neutrality. Drones play a crucial part in implementing the European Green Deal’s vision of developing and maintaining a cleaner and sustainable system of transporting persons and goods via the European Airspace and reaching yet unreachable locations, such as those with harsh terrains for traditional transportation. It is with much anticipation that the Strategy looks forward to the bright future envisioned and inspired by the drone industry, however issues of safety, privacy, liability, and security should not be neglected. This paper focuses on changes and challenges in current European regulation implementing the newly released Drone Strategy 2.0 and compares the concomitant drone regulation of other countries.
