This increase of new students demanding to learn to fly drones has been a real revolution, but it is also causing an increase in the number of drones flying over our skies, which have caused a significant increase in potential accidents between manned aircraft and drones, a latent danger causing many headaches to the authorities.
Experts from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) are analyzing the possible effects of a collision between a manned aircraft and a drone. These experts point out that a collision between the two aircraft could cause, among other damages to the manned aircraft, a strong impact on the windshield of the cabin causing a burst or causing uncontrollable engine failures in the event that different fragments of the drone were thrown at high speed towards these.
How can we avoid collisions between the two aircraft? Mainly, they can be avoided if the person who manages the drone has been trained on its piloting, respecting the aviation rules. In addition to this, among the established rules it should be stressed that the authorities have indicated that drones weighing more than 20 kilograms or having commercial purposes must have a certain regulation in this respect, but pilots must also use “common sense” and be very prudent when carrying out these flights.
