SHARE THE AIR (Electronic Conspicuity)

Electronic conspicuously solutions : A call for evidence

The widespread adoption of electronic conspicuously (EC), were everything flying sends an electronic signal identifying it, will be key in achieving safe and sustainable airspace in the future.

The government recognises this and has asked the CAA to develop proposals for its UK wide roll out Aviation Strategy Green Paper. The CAA have done this via it's airspace modernisation strategy that sets out the main initiatives required to upgrade the U.K.'s airspace structure.

The CAA have launched a call for evidence about some of the key proposals for the wider roll out on EC in the UK. The output of the call will directly influence the way forward.

This call for evidence is open 25 May 2019. To submit a response on line:

The CAA & the reason why you should use approved operators.

The CAA & the reason why you should use approved operators.

Anyone being paid to fly a drone should be an approved operator

If you hire someone to fly a drone who isn't approved they may not have the required skills or insurance and will be flying illegally

If you are paying someone to fly a drone you must check that they have the necessary safety approval or you could be paying for an unsafe operator that probably won't have any insurance if things go wrong, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) warned today…

UAV technology is showing great potential for breaking down communication barriers on construction projects and making planning faster, easier, and more accurate.

On large construction projects, it can be difficult to gain an accurate, timely understanding of the state of the project. A big site with dozens, if not hundreds, of people from several different companies means there are many moving parts and communication is a constant challenge. This is where UAV technology can make a big impact.
