Assisting UAV operators and manufacturers  with regulatory compliance advice and CAA operational authorisations

Con Ops, OSC and SORA assistance

Are you planning a UAV service or developing a new UAV?

All operations in Europe and the UK that are in the 'Specific' category are required to obtain an 'Operational Authorisation' from their National Aviation Authority.


Having Across Safety as part of your team means that you have expert guidance through the crucial regulatory requirements and this ensures you get the operational authorisation you need in an efficient and timely way. 


We help you through the regulatory aspects of your operation by:

  • Providing expert advice during the planning phase to make sure you get it right the first time
  • Establishing Operations Manuals, policies and procedures in line with best practices from our extensive manned and unmanned aviation industry experience
  • Preparing your regulator application by producing your:
    • Concept of Operations (ConOps)
    • JARUS and EASA Specific Operations Risk Assessments (SORA)
    • UK CAA Operating Safety Case (OSC) 
  • When it comes to SORA based applications we provide advice on how to best meet your robustness and integrity requirements related to the various Operational Safety Objectives (OSOs)
  • Having established effective working relationships with CAAs from around the world

See our 2018 Farnborough International Airshow keynote presentation on 'UAVs: Safety, Risk and Regulations' here, including:

• Summary of UAV operations and the UK/European UAV regulatory framework

• The Joint Authorities for Rulemaking of Unmanned Systems (JARUS) and the guidelines they propose for Specific Operations Risk Assessments (SORA)
