JEDA – Joint European Drone Associations,décembre 13, 2021
The new EU Association, unified voice in the European drone sector
November 12th, 2021, European drone-related associations gathered in Brussels to take a significant step forward in the EU Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) sector by creating JEDA.
The Joint European Drones Associations, a new policy-oriented partnership of European drone-related associations is established to promote the interests of the growing number of stakeholders engaged in the operation, production, research and development, service, and applications of all kinds of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in Europe.
Also, JEDA aims to represent the increased legislative and regulatory activity that affects everyone who flies a drone for personal and professional use and to develop and maintain a common understanding of the seamless integration of UAS/RPAS into aviation and the European airspace system.
Towards European drone operators, JEDA will quickly carry out specific significant actions in the service of the UAS sector.
JEDA will promote and support an extensive range of European drone activities and all related businesses including manufacturers, suppliers of business solutions, UTM service providers, operators and training organisations, in order to create synergy between stakeholders in search of new markets.
JEDA encourages sharing best practices in using new regulations and technologies and creating standard tools and information to facilitate their European operations.
All the JEDA members will be involved in advocacy, advice, and links with the European Commission and the leading European bodies (such as EASA, EUROCONTROL and EDA), projects (such as SESAR), companies and stakeholders involved in the UAS/UTM/UAM sector.
Currently, the members of JEDA are ADA (Albanian Drone Association) Albania, APANT (Associação Portuguesa de Aeronaves Não Tripuladas) Portugal, ASSORPAS (Associazione Italiana Droni) Italy, BAIA (Bulgarian Aviation Industry Association) Bulgaria, BDF (Belgian Drone Federation) Belgium, DCRO (Dutch Certified RPAS Operators) Netherlands, DRONEA (Asociacija DroneA) Lithuania, EAC (Estonian Aviation Cluster) Estonia, EUKA (Vlaamse Drone Federatie) Belgium, FDPC (Fédération Professionnelle du Drone Civil) France, H.U.S.I. (Hellenic U-Space Institute) Greece, LARPAS (Latvian Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) Latvia, RPAS Finland Ry Finland, UAAI (Unmanned Aircraft Association of Ireland) Ireland, UAV DACH (Unmanned Aviation Association) Germany, Austria, Switzerland.
JEDA is open and welcomes national UAS associations from all EASA member states and EU candidate countries.

I’m the Partnerships Manager for the Drone Expo in London, and would like to work with you as media partners for our exhibition in September, at the ExCeL London.
The show is the United Kingdom’s largest event in the UAV Industry and is an opportunity for aviation and construction professionals to network, source new products, sell new products, attend seminars, panel sessions, innovation awards, and much more. With the show having 100 seminars, 3000 attendees and 300 exhibitors taking place in total, there is a total of 50 Hours worth of content and a very wide range of product types and service offerings. Keynote sessions will be given by experts from many fields such as, Robert Courts MP, (Minister for Aviation, Maritime & Security), Airbus and The National Police Air Service.
To be clear, this would be a strictly non-financial (contra-based) partnership, whereby we ask you to communicate the show to your members and let them know how to book tickets for free, and in return we will feature you as an official media partner of the show on promotional material.
I’d like to arrange a call to discuss a way in which we could work together. Would you be able to suggest a good time to speak to let me know your thoughts?
Thanks and Kind regards,
