Test with drone medical aid transport! (Netherlands)

Because there are many questions, the municipality of Schiermonnikoog holds an information afternoon to inform people who are interested and maybe have some concerns.
The initiators then explain the design of the test and what the possible risks are.
Jan Wiersma van Vliegend.nl is currently working on the preparations. He is involved in DroneHub's drone. The flying itself is not that difficult, so a drone can be programmed to fly to Schier and drug droppings on its own, which is only illegal in the Netherlands, and according to the rules, one must always have a drone in sight. This is of course not possible, and the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management has now granted an exemption.
According to Wiersma, there are not many risks associated with the test: "We have to have a good plan, we are working hard on that, we are walking around with a team of five people, which means we are now training a lot. Then you always keep in contact with the drone and remain well controllable, and if the connection is lost, there is an emergency system that ensures that the device is as good as it gets." During the test, the drone flies at a height of 150 meters above the Wadden Sea.

The clip is narrated in the Dutch language. Excuses for the inconvenience but we think that the images tell the story clearly.

The device can not be seen or heard from the ground. "The inconvenience to nature therefore remains limited," Wiersma thinks.The Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management also wants the test to clarify which rules do and do not work well. These must become more concrete with a view to the future. This is also necessary because the expectation is that drones will play a much larger role in the transport of parcels or other goods.
