As a drone pilot, you are confronted with a multitude of regulations and approval processes that significantly influence your services and opportunities. In particular, the Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) is an important hurdle to overcome. But what exactly is behind this process and how can you manage it easily as a drone pilot?
The SORA challenge
SORA stands for Specific Operations Risk Assessment and is an essential part of the authorisation process for drone flights in the special category (see EU Drone Regulation). This is a complex and often time-consuming process, where numerous factors must be taken into account to ensure the safety of drone operations.
A SORA is always necessary if your planned drone flight no longer falls into the Open category. This is the case, for example, for flights above 120m, out of sight, in special areas and much more. With the help of a SORA, you can apply for a permit to fly anyway. This means you can offer drone flights that many other drone pilots may not dare to do. A crucial competitive advantage!
The SORA process involves a thorough risk analysis and the development of appropriate safety measures. Although this process is very important to ensure safety in the airspace, it can also be perceived as a bureaucratic hurdle that keeps you from your real goal – flying drones. This is one reason why many drone pilots avoid such flights and turn down potentially lucrative and exciting assignments.
