What we are:

ARPAS is a Professional Trade Assocation that represents the small RPAS industry and all of its stakeholders. ARPAS-UK is a limited company, not for profit and is funded by subscription and other mechanisms.

ARPAS was set up just over a year ago and members voted the current committee into post at the first AGM held in Feb 2014.

Committee members developed a robust structure for the organisation that reflects the interest of the members with the prime aim of growing the industry.

Who do we represent:

We represent every industry stakeholder involved in this data industry, from operators to end users, and all of the consultants and industry service providers in between.

Can I be a member? If you believe your business model fits with our objectives then YES!

Our specific objectives can be summarised as:

  1. Create a unified voice by co-ordinating sector representation and develop a forum for business’s to collaborate, promote safety standards, and take a leading role in influencing opinion on RPAS legislation.
