CAA became a member of JARUS
The Civil Aviation Authority of the Republic of Macedonia became a member of the Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) on 1 December 2014.
JARUS is a group of experts from the National Aviation Authorities and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), along with EUROCONTROL as an active participant. This distinguished establishment is open for all civil aviation authorities to participate. Its purpose is to recommend a single set of technical, safety and operational requirements for the certification and safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into airspace and at aerodromes.
Aviation Authorities worldwide, at national or regional level, are involved in the rulemaking, certification and operational approval of unmanned aircraft systems and related crews; it is of interest and benefit to these authorities to coordinate the effort of establishing the technical, safety and operational requirements for related projects. The objective of JARUS is to provide guidance material aiming to facilitate each authority to write their own requirements and to avoid duplicate efforts. If endorsed by the authorities, this harmonised guidance, both technical and operational, would facilitate the validation process of foreign certificates.
