BVZD - Branchenverband Zivile Drohnen e. V. organizes the dialog between the civil drone industry, politics and society in the fields of new mobility, logistics and digitalization. The central goal of the association is the economic promotion of the young industry, the increase of flight safety in alignment with other road users and the positive shaping of political framework conditions.
With around 250 members, the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) represents the interests of an industry that is characterized by international technological leadership and global success. The German aerospace industry is not only the lifeline and driving force of the economy, but also an important employer of predominantly highly qualified employees.
The primary tasks of the BDLI include communication with political institutions, authorities, associations and foreign representations in Germany as well as a wide range of member services in Germany and abroad. The association is also the trademark owner of ILA Berlin - the trade show for "Innovation and Leadership in Aerospace".
For many years now, the BDLI UAV Expert Committee has successfully accompanied the development of the civil and military drone market.
In view of overlapping interests, in 2017 the BDLI partnered with the German Air Transport Association on Unmanned Aviation (BUVUS) and established the voice of Unmanned Aviation in Germany with the joint initiative Verband Unbemannte Luftfahrt.
The German Air Transport Association (BDL) is the common voice of the German air transport industry.
It is open to all German aviation companies and associations. The association represents and promotes the interests of airlines, airports, German air traffic control and other service providers in German aviation.
The BDL is committed to ensuring that Germany can develop as a high-performance and competitive aviation location - in responsibility for society and the environment. The association acts as a central point of contact for politicians, the media and the public, bundling and communicating the issues that are of importance to the German air transport industry.
In order to speak with a strong voice on the important subject of unmanned aviation, manufacturers and operators in the German aviation industry - represented by the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) and the German Air Transport Association (BDL) - have joined forces in the Unmanned Aviation Association.
UAV DACH e.V. exists since 2000 and is the largest and most experienced German-speaking professional association for unmanned aerial vehicles in Europe. It represents the interests of about 220+ members from research & development, manufacturer and supplier industry as well as users and service providers from the countries Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. The association's superordinate goals are the economical construction and use of unmanned aerial vehicles for the benefit of the public, the achievement of broad public acceptance and operational safety in the airspace without danger to persons and property on the ground.
The Verband Unbemannte Luftfahrt is a joint initiative of the German Air Transport Association (BDL) and the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI). The new association is primarily concerned with the challenges of certifying commercially used unmanned aviation systems and integrating them into the existing air transport system. The focus is on the safe coexistence of manned and unmanned aviation.
