The fifth session of the World Aviation Safety Summit, hosted by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority at the InterContinental Festival City, Dubai, on April 11-12, will discuss the increasing number of UAVs worldwide, and the security challenges it poses.

The figures indicate that pilots and air traffic controllers reported more than 100 UAVs to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) per month, with more than 1,200 cases in the United States over the past year. Regulators are working on specific laws on how to integrate the commercial use of UAVs into the airspace, as well as to educate their users about their potential risks.

According to a study conducted by the International Air Transport Association, the number of communications received from 7 official sources amounted to 856 reports on unmanned aircraft, between January 2013 and June 2016, including a confirmed collision and other suspected.

The unmanned drones ranged from 15 feet to 38,000 feet. IATA is working closely with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on safety issues related to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and has invited countries around the world to educate their citizens on safe use of these aircraft.

A study by Globart Partners, the industry-leading aerospace consultancy, predicted that crashes with medium-sized drones and near-danger accidents would double significantly over the next decade, with actual accidents likely.

Arno Fioland, managing partner of the company, says that as the air traffic accelerates, traffic regulators, operators and manufacturers should join forces to provide safety solutions for commercial air traffic, as well as gradually raise awareness about the risks to public aviation And the next generation of “known flying objects”.

Unmanned drones in the UAE also caused some confusion. Dubai International Airport was closed for more than one hour on 29 October last year due to the entry of an unmanned aircraft into its airspace, resulting in 22 domestic flights To other airports. It is currently prohibited to fly unmanned aircraft within 5 kilometers of any airport from the UAE.

“We continue our efforts to educate our citizens on UAV rules to ensure the greatest possible safety within our airspace, and work closely with strategic partners in the sector to address the challenges posed by the UAE,” said Mohammed Abdullah Al Ahli, Director General of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority. The use of UAVs constantly, under regulations and legislation that contribute to reducing those risks. The World Aviation Safety Summit will be an ideal platform to propose new standards that enhance the security and safety of the air space. “
