SAFIR-Med Conference and Demo Event

This remarkable event including a half-day conference and flights demonstrations will bring together the medical and aviation sectors at Dronoport.

SAFIR-Med is a European research and innovation project in the unmanned aviation domain aimed at ensuring the continued quality and democratic access of citizens to the EU healthcare system using safe, sustainable, socially accepted and effective urban air mobility. The SAFIR-MED project partners are proud to invite you for a showcase event around medical air mobility including a half-day Conference and flight demonstrations. This remarkable event will bring together the medical and aviation sectors at the Droneport test center in Belgium on 7/04/22 afternoon, between 12.00-18.00 CET.

The SAFIR-Med project partners have been preparing for a full de-risking process of the demonstrator flight scenarios that will be practiced and finally executed at the BVLOS testing area in Sint-Truiden. This is organized in cooperation with key stakeholders, like the involved CAA’s, the various involved authorities and ground partners. Interaction with several organisations is sought after to align on safety requirements, advised procedures and their feedback will be provided. The trial flights will demonstrate the transport of human tissue and/or biological lab samples and medicine, an operation with a drone carrying an automated external defibrillator, and a patient transport operation.

Please join us to experience the drone world at first hand, witness the future integration of drones into wider air traffic and provide your feedback.

You will have the opportunity to find out about what is going on within the EU, from authorities, leading aviation and medical actors.
