Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are a rising field of interest in aviation. Besides military applications where UAS have been operated for years in 4D (Dull, Dangerous, Dirty and Deep) missions, civil applications are stagnating. The development of civil Light Unmanned Aerial Systems and their integration into civil aerospace is presently a topic of interest for National Aviation Agencies and International Aviation Organizations. While large UASs will be covered by an EASA-building code, the design approval of light drones (Class I and Class II) will remain in the jurisdiction of National Aviation Authorities. To insure a homogeneous procedural method, the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAR) founded the task group Joint Authorities for Rulemaking on Unmanned Systems (JARUS) with the aim to acquire and to agree on a basic prescription. In a preliminary investigation, a certification specification for Light Unmanned Aerial Systems (CS-LUAS) was developed in order to ensure a common and easy certification process for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles with a maximum takeoff weight of 150kg, the ground control unit and the command and control datalink. The tailoring principle was applied in order to obtain the building code. The certification specification for Very Light Aeroplanes (CS-VLA) was chosen as a baseline and every paragraph was reviewed and evaluated concerning its applicability for UASs. Besides the mentioned certification specification, the NATO Standardization Agreement STANAG 4671 was incorporated to cover aspects like the departure, landing and equipment that is necessary for a safe operation of the unmanned system. The proposed draft of a certification specification for Light Unmanned Systems will be reviewed in the JARUS task group and will contribute to the development of a pan-European building code for light UAS.
