Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) for drone approval under new EASA scheme

Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) for drone approval under new EASA scheme

HOOFDDORP - NL, ADSE and Public Air Services achieved submission of SORA (Specific Operations Risk Assessment) for BVLOS drone operations.

This milestone was reached for operations over the North Sea with the High Eye HEF 32 platform. 

New EASA regulations

The approach taken was a risk assessment based on EASA Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947. This new scheme will come into effect on December 31st, 2020. 

To reach this thorough and quick result, ADSE used safety & reliability expertise and systems engineering methods as an EASA DOA (21J.481) in commercial aviation.
