    This is just 4 of the hundreds of similar cases being reported since January. Hope you are part of the solution by warning others of the dangers being created by these guys . . of gals maybe? The threat is real and needs to stop. It may seem like a fun challenge when you think of doing it . . . but it really puts a lot of REAL lives in danger.

    Take the high road and stay low!

    I have to wonder how many of these are true drone spotting, and if so, how many of these are governmental/military purposes.

    Think you can spot a consumer drone at 1 nautical mile (1852 meters), 2000 feet (609 meters) below you, while traveling 140 kt (72 meters per second)?

    Not discounting the danger that a consumer drone can present to other aviation, but some of the reports are surely misplaced when used to form policy.

    That's an excellent article and the link to the study is EXACTLY the real data I was looking for, about the reality of the REAL risk that drones pose today. I'm at the International UAV Conference in Toronto week after next,(6-7 Dec) . . and I going to print out ever chart from that study. . . and see how people respond.
    GREAT FIND . . . thanks!

    You've just opened up a huge treasure trove of articles and studies on RISK analysis. The links in that last article are going to keep me busy for a while. Just in time for the Conference too. The only things I've been able to get my hands on so far was HYPED up news and Transport Canada/ FAA official data which is overly pessimistic about the risks. Thanks again for opening up that window. I was sure there must be lots of academic analysis on this but buried somewhere in acade
    Yes for sure . . I'm a rules guy too . . ex-military pilot . . . but I always want to know WHY the rule says XXXX when if you think about it rationally it could say YYYY
    You've just opened up a huge treasure trove of articles and studies on DRONE RISK analysis. The links in that last article are going to keep me busy for a while. Just in time for the Conference too. The only things I've been able to get my hands on so far was HYPED up news and Transport Canada/ FAA official data which is overly pessimistic about the risks . . and with no explanation as to WHY really.

    Thanks again for opening up that window. I was sure there must be lots of academic analysis on this but buried somewhere in academia.
