France has developed 4 standard scenarios within its national regulation since 2012 (two in visual line of sight, and two beyond visual line of sight). To meet the industry needs, 2 new standard scenarios are currently being developed. The first one allows a light training for UAS flights operated for internal purposes. The second refers to long range operations. These improvements are made possible thanks to a close cooperation between the French Civil aviation authority and the French industry. These new standard scenarios are meant to match with the future EU regulation framework.
