26 unmanned systems inside April/May 2017 SPECIAL REPORT INDUSTRY TRENDS Breaking Free The unveiling of the new FA A Part 107 regulation last year has been accompanied by a raft of overseas drone-related compa- nies joining the U.S. and North American marketplace. The early promise of Europe in terms of commercial drone operations, with some countries allowing certain kinds of activities as long ago as 2012, has now given way to the more typical European bureaucratic wrangling and delays. There is no overarching European framework and there is not likely to be one in the near future, with the EU embroiled in a regulatory process that will go on for years, a process which, for many, is difficult to understand or even characterize. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is looking ahead, and for many that means America. In an earlier interview, Guillaume Schavann of Heliceo's marketing depart- ment told IUS, "Europe is just not ready for us. The EU regulation problem is slow- ing everything down and that's why you are seeing European companies like Heliceo moving to the U.S." FOX6 The Fox6 drone surveyor, with its two-axis gyroscope front pod and 15-inch carbon propellers, is a multirotor drone made for observation and topography.
