The German drone council is still young. However, it has proven to be a helpful tool to draft a national drone strategy and to collect the essence of the German drone community. The presentation will visualize the results of the working groups and of the steering committee. The next step will be to channel the activities of the council into a drone strategy that helps the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to lay out a Drone Strategy that caters to safety aspects and the potential of the new technology in a balanced way. Some crucial aspects of the future strategy will be presented.
