The aim of the event is to demonstrate how the SAFIR-Med project advances the state-of-the-art in European U-space achieving safe, sustainable, socially accepted and socially beneficial urban air mobility. With the impulse from COVID-19 and EU drone legislation, the landscape is changing in favour of medical drones. This will showcase how our society is getting closer to bringing medical UAM to cities and their citizens. We will present and demonstrate various medical use cases, as well as a set of UAM indicators we developed that enable UAM impact assessment and finally several new technologies developed in the project. The trial flights will demonstrate the transport of human tissue and/or biological lab samples and medicine, an operation with a drone carrying an automated external defibrillator, and a patient transport operation.

Please join us to experience the drone world at first hand, witness the future integration of drones into wider air traffic and provide your feedback. You will have the opportunity to find out about what is going on within the EU, from authorities, leading aviation and medical actors.
