Download the White Paper: An Analysis of the Drone Industry’s Progress and Focus on Safety

Five years into the development of the commercial drone industry, a picture is starting to emerge about the nature of the flight risks, the frailties of the systems and the ways in which the hazards can be avoided, at least to some degree. The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry is growing at a speed that will challenge our expectations. Global Aerospace continues to work with a significant number of companies to help them understand best practices and safely utilize this incredible technology.

This new white paper, the fourth in a series, will analyze the data and share some of what we have learned from the substantial collection of salvaged hardware we have scrutinized over the past several years. DARTdrones, our SM4 Aviation Safety Program partner will also provide practical advice for loss prevention and risk management for drone operators.
