EU-Asia Symposium on UAS/UAM

18.-21. October 2022

Goodwood Park Hotel, Singapore

EU-Asia Symposium on UAS/UAM

The first EU-Asia symposium on UAS/UAM was held in Singapore from 18th—21st October at Goodwood Park Hotel. The event was funded by the European Union and co-hosted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. The event was organized by EU Aviation Partnership Project in South Asia, South East Asia & North Asia. The symposium covered common regulatory and operational challenges in safely integrating drones and air taxis into the aviation system. The agenda was based on:

Day 1 – Industry perspectives
Day 2 – UAS operations
Day 3 – eVTOLs and their ecosystem
Day 4 – Airspace matters

It was significant to note that EASA representatives of all three Projects participated at this event. Although Mr. Carlos Menendez, the Project Manager was unable to attend the symposium as he was indisposed due to recovery after a back injury, he participated online together with Mr. Frederic Chambon, Project Manager, EU-NA APP. Mr. David Waller, EASA Representative in Singapore representing EU-SEA APP on-site, Mr. Hyang-Gyu Park from EU-NA APP along with Mr. Mahmood Razee, Project Director, EU-SA APP II joined the symposium on-site, too. There were over 10 EASA high level UAS/UAM experts attending the symposium exchanging their valuable expert knowledge through the presentations. 150 participants from the industry & the Civil Aviation Authorities attended the workshop.

It was encouraging to see Mr. Luc Tytgat attending the meeting right after his arrival from Cologne to Singapore and giving his key note address. The Highlight of the event on the first day was the signing of a MoU between EASA & CAAS.
