About SORA Consulting

If you’re an organisation in need of a drone mission approval, an executive briefing on what’s going on in the world of drones, or training on how to use the Specific Operations Risk Assessment (SORA) tool, contact us!

At SORA Consulting we believe that with the appearance of commercial drones, the sky is in everybody’s reach and it’s no longer necessary to go through extensive aviation training to access this vast airspace. More than ever, easy-to-use systems make it possible for organisations within a wide spectrum of industries to facilitate daily tasks and save considerable money.

Unfortunately, compliance with today’s laws and negotiating with airspace regulators is often still time consuming and costly. With our industry connections, our extensive knowledge of the SORA methodology and vast experience in the field, we at SORA Consulting, make it our mission to help you and your company get your drone approved.

SORA Consulting has already tailored authorisations for many large organisations, while at the same time being a trusted advisor to the Swiss Government on drone operations.


After studying mechanical engineering at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanneand Aerospace engineering at Delft Techical University, I saw an opportunity to immerse myself in the world of drones by joining the Swiss Federal Office of Civil aviation FOCA. There I developed standard scenarios for drone operations in Switzerland and contributed to the developement of the SORA riskassessment tool. After gaining considerable insight and knowledge inoperational authorisations and risk assessment for drones, I founded SORA Consulting to advise companies, NGO’s, and government bodies on operational authorisations and strategic drone related topics in Switzerland and internationally
