It stands for Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) and represents a comprehensive risk analysis for a planned operation with drones. It is required for an operating permit in the specific category. We guide you through the entire application and SORA process to enable your specific drone operations!

If you submit an “application for operation in the specific category”, you must make a SORA. Siehe auch Do I need to obtain an authorisation before flying my drone in the ‘specific’ category? | EASA

  • Flights above 120 m AGL (please also note the exceptions around certain infrastructure)
  • Flights with drones heavier than 25 kg or above the permitted speeds
  • Flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS flights), this also includes FPV flights if no observer is used!
  • Flights over uninvolved persons with drones > 249 g
  • If objects are to be dropped
  • If dangerous goods are to be transported

    See also How do I determine I fall under the ‘specific’ category? | EASA

This is prohibited in the Open category. The only exceptions are in Follow-Me mode and when a UA observer (another person who always has the drone in view) is used (FPV flight).

If you want to submit an application for operation in the “Specific” category. See also Do I need to obtain approval before I can fly my drone in the “specific” category? | EASA

If you can fly in the

  • “Open” category, or
  • can use an STS or PDRA,or
  • fly indoors

SORA is an “Acceptable Means of Compliance” (AMC) for EASA, i.e. an accepted way of analyzing the risk of a drone operation and taking measures to reduce the latter. As SORA was developed by an international group of experts (JARUS), there are also countries outside the EASA area of validity that accept SORA. Other countries are still considering adopting this type of risk analysis based on experience in Europe.

  1. The flight does not take place in the “Open” category
  2. The operation does not take place in the “Certified” category
  3. The operation is not already covered by a standard scenario (STS) or predefined risk analysis (PDRA), provided a corresponding drone is available
  4. The operation is not prohibited by an authority-specific “no-go”
  5. Operator registration in an EU country (and therefore liability insurance) see also Will my registration as drone operator be recognized throughout Europe? | EASA
  6. Insurance see also Do I need insurance? | EASA
  1. Scope for design and facilitation of new (process) technical innovations and unique operating models (entry threshold for competitors and USP)
  2. In-depth examination of the topic of risk (good airmanship) – risk-based approach
  3. In terms of aviation safety and uninvolved persons on the ground (holistic)
  4. Creation of an operations manual, which is necessary for controlled operations anyway and can be reused for new applications, operating licenses and SORAs
  5. Development of own (flight) procedures, training, etc.
  6. Legal certainty – reduction of entrepreneurial risk (negligence, willful misconduct)
  • Higher initial costs (but faster amortization possible through USP)
  • High initial outlay (but developed documents such as operating manual can be reused/further developed)
