The flight demonstrations will simulate various scenarios such as an emergency rescue situation; the operation of the "nest" type structures which are, in turn, charging stations that allow drones to be available in remote areas with the capacity to take off, fly and land autonomously. The companies and organisations that will carry out the demonstrations are: StockRC, Aerotools, Abionica Solutions, ITG, HP Drones, Benidorm Local Police, Madrid Municipal Police and SAMUR.

In addition, INECO, Madrid Municipal Police and ENAIRE will demonstrate the European U-Elcome project of which they are part and which will allow, for the first time, to test the deployment of U-space: the set of services and procedures that facilitate, in a regulated and coordinated manner in Europe, safe and efficient access to airspace for a large number of UAS, as well as their coexistence with manned aircraft in certain airspaces. ENAIRE has been designated as the single common information service provider (CISP) in Spain, which is necessary for the provision of U-space services.
