    If your drone is under 2 kilos weight in the Limited Open Category during the transition period of 2021 & 2022, you will be able to fly missions closer to infrastructures and people than heavier #drones.

    Great interview with Pierre-Alain Marchand who summarises what is in store for drone owners and operaters in Europe from January 1st 2021.
