Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are becoming increasingly important these days, not only for military but also for civil purposes. Today, the common consensus is that unmanned aircraft systems have to comply with the airspace classification rules just like any other airspace user. However, a large number of open questions concerning laws and regulations, certification and operations still remain open.

In early 2016, the “Kolloquium Flugführung” picked up on this widely discussed topic, and internationally renowned experts have been won to participate.

The Institutes of Flight Guidance of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Technical University of Braunschweig would like to cordially thank all participants of the 2016 season and especially the domestic and foreign speakers!

Once a year, the public lecture series Kolloquium Flugführung organised by the two Braunschweig Institutes of Flight Guidance gathers flight guidance experts at the DLR site in Braunschweig. The series with an annually changing key topic offers the opportunity to learn interesting facts about research and practice and to take a closer look at this field of aviation from different angles.
