Drones: Adapting To A World Of UAVs And Its Impact On Aviation
While unmanned aircraft technology is not new, the thought of thousands of drones constantly buzzing around our skies still feels as if it belongs in a futuristic movie. However, such a sight is closer than may be expected. With flying cars among the next steps forward in innovation, it could ultimately be a partial solution to the pilot crisis that is already impacting the commercial aviation sector.
Much of the progress will depend on regulatory authorities developing robust standards, enabling new applications “and the ability of innovators to understand what technology is available to enable their vision of the future,” according to one industry leader.
