Funding for Projects (BV87 Specialfinancing)

If you have a project in Switzerland that is designed to improve safety, security or environmental protection in aviation, you may be eligible for co-funding up to 80% from the Federal Office of Civil Aviation.

UASolutions is specialised in such funding applications and offers a full range of support in order to obtain co-funding from the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Aviation.

Some considerations

Projects are generally assessed in terms of their effectiveness for aviation safety, security or environmental protection and their relevance to the FOCA’s strategy.

 

The co-financing rate is usually up to 80%. However, it is generally proportional to the added value of the overall project in terms of safety, security or environmental protection.

 

Projects need to be submitted annually in November.

 

UASolutions will guide you through all administrative procedures and help you obtain the highest possible funding.

Elegibility

Projects that are usually eligible for co-financing by the FOCA (non-exhaustive list) typically include:

  • Development of a new, more environmentally friendly energy management or propulsion system
  • Design of collision avoidance systems such as Detect and Avoid systems
  • Improvement of infrastructure to enhance safety at airports, aerodromes or heliports
  • Training of personnel in the aviation industry
  • Development of technologies to reduce noise pollution from aircraft

“We are grateful for the services provided by UASolutions! Nathanel has a great experience in the field and he is capable of taking off our shoulders an incredible amount of work, not only by redacting documents with a maximum professionalism, but also by discussing with people and managing stakeholders.

The value for money for UASolutions services makes it an obvious choice for all work that you cannot do internally, and more.”
