Airbus Authorized For Civil UAS Design

Airbus Authorized For Civil UAS Design 22 September, 2016

Airbus Defence and Space has been approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the design and development of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) intended for civil type certification.  Achieving a first in the world, the approval came two years after Airbus’ Atlante UAS has been submitted to EASA for civil certification. Thus, the company’s existing Design Organisation Approval (DOA) for conventional manned aircraft has been extended to cover UAS.
