FAA: Drone Reg. Number

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has posted a rule in the Federal Register requiring small drone owners to display the FAA-issued registration number on an outside surface of the aircraft. Owners and operators may no longer place or write registration numbers in an interior compartment. The rule is effective on February 25. The markings must be in place for any flight after that date. When the FAA first required registration of small drones in 2015, the agency mandated that the registration marking be readily accessible and maintained in readable condition. The rule granted some flexibility by permitting the marking to be placed in an enclosed compartment, such as a battery case, if it could be accessed without the use of tools. Subsequently, law enforcement officials and the FAA’s interagency security partners have expressed concerns about the risk a concealed explosive device might pose to first responders upon opening a compartment to find a drone’s registration number. The FAA believes this action will enhance safety and security by allowing a person to view the unique identifier directly without handling the drone. This interim final rule does not change the original acceptable methods of external marking, nor does it specify a particular external surface on which the registration number must be placed. The requirement is that it can be seen upon visual inspection of the aircraft’s exterior. The FAA has issued this requirement as an Interim Final Rule—a rule that takes effect while also inviting public comment. The FAA issues interim final rules when delaying implementation of the

Airbus Publishes Study into Public Perception of Urban Air Mobility

Airbus – one of several players in the race to make Urban Air Mobility (UAM) a reality – has delved into how open the public is to the idea of getting from A to B using unmanned aircraft. The report can be read in full, here. The study’s headlines are fairly positive.

Electric Drone Market – Global Forecast to 2023

Global Electric Drone Market Information: Global Electric Drone Market Information Report by Surveillance Mission (Border Surveillance, Natural Disasters, Illegal Traffic Monitoring, and Others), by Application (Commercial and Civil, and Military), by Payload (Electro-Optical/Infrared Sensors, Camera, Electronic Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, and Others) and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America) – Forecast to 2023 Key Players The key players of the global electric drone market are AgEagle (U.S.), Agribotix (U.S.) , Airinov (France), Festo(Germnay), Gamaya (Switzerland), Headwall (U.S.), LeddarTech(Quebec), MicaSense(U.S.), Novariant(U.S.), Parrot(France),  senseFly (Switzerland),  Shadow Robotics (U.K.),  Trimble (U.S.), URSULA Agriculture (U.K,) , Yanmar (Japan) , and Yara (Norwat). In 2016, these players accounted for XX% share of the global market. Market Scenario Drones are also referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles, which are controlled autonomously by a remote control or an on-board computer. Although, of late, electric drones are rapidly being used for commercial and recreational purposes they are primarily used in defense and military. Due to the extensive investments by the drone manufacturers, in the development of lighter and better efficient electric drones, the global market is expected to witness significant growth, during the forecast period. With a number of revenue streams opening up in this market as a result of the rapidly increasing commercial applications such as aerial photography, agriculture, wildlife protection, and 3D mapping, the global electric drone market is poised for a rapid and momentous growth, in the near future. As a result, it is expected that the global electric

Almost all mid-air glider collisions are with another glider, and they mainly happen in the dynamic situations in thermals and around airfields, where other gliders can be hidden from sight behind the glider structure. Mid-air collisions have killed a number of UK glider pilots since 1975. In 2004, three Swiss glider pilots applied their engineering […] Almost all mid-air glider collisions are with another glider, and they mainly happen in the dynamic situations in thermals and around airfields, where other gliders can be hidden from sight behind the glider structure.
