(May 4, 2016) The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recently announced the creation of a task force to assess the risk of collision between drones and aircraft.
The task force will review all relevant occurrences, analyze any existing studies on the subject, study the vulnerabilities of aircraft (windshields, engines, and airframe), and consider the possibility to do further research and perform actual tests (for example on windshields), according to EASA.Europe.eu.
The task force will include representatives of aircraft and engine manufacturers. At the end of July, it will publish its results and will organize a workshop to present and discuss its findings and recommendations, reported EASA.
