The Swiss Association of Civil Drones is a member of various associations and committees. Here you will find a list of the various partners.

Those who actively participate can also make a difference

Through its membership and cooperation in the various associations and committees, SFCD has the opportunity to communicate and discuss its wishes and ideas regarding drone flight with its various partners. It is important that there is a close cooperation with the different participants. So far, the association has been able to express its point of view on some topics and thus fulfil its main task of representing its members. 

The association always has an open ear for suggestions in connection with drone aviation and its ordinances and laws and will seriously examine every concern. It is clear that not all suggestions can be implemented. However, even concerns that cannot be implemented can provide important input for the future.

We thank you for your cooperation.
