ETF position on drones: "one sky – one safety"
In the past, remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) or drones have been primarily used for military purposes. However, the decreasing costs of their purchase and operation enabled a more wide-spread use. Today, RPAS are being used among other things for aerial filming and photographing, safety inspections of pipelines or buildings or by farmers. Tests are being performed for delivery of goods or even transport of passengers.  Given the shape and size of RPAS, they might not be visible to other traffic, especially when speed is taken into account. RPAS – even the light ones below 1kg – can cause immense damage to helicopters; the impact of damage to fixed-wing commercial aircraft is not even evaluated yet. The potential safety and security risks are immense, and the safety and security aspects of integrating RPAS into airspace need to be carefully addressed by the regulators. more >>
