Ms Violeta Bulc, Member of the European Commission (EC) in charge of Transport, attended a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS)/Drones media event in Belgium yesterday, 2 March 2015. As can be seen on the video (see link below) she was accompanied by Koen de Vos of Directorate General Mobility & Transport. This event, during which several RPAS/drones were demonstrated, clearly shows that RPAS/drones are firmly established on the EC’s strategic aviation agenda, as indeed Violeta Bulc indicates in the video.
It should be noted that this event took place 2 days prior to the high level political RPAS conference that is taking place in Riga, Latvia this week that will also be attended by Violeta Bulc.
