[TC] FAA Appeals Commercial Drone Ruling, Cites Safety Concerns - Page 2

post #11 of 37
There does need to be rules for this... though I do think that drones for civ. use should be allowed.. rules and regulations should be in place so that they are used responsibly (ya know so every Tom, Dick, and Harry don't go spying on their ex's). Things such as interference with air traffic, for example will have to be taken into account. The largest area of civilian use that is being pushed for this is farming, so that farmers can have a much better view of the state of their crops, what areas need more or less nutrients, minerals, water, etc. Was reading a short article about this in Popular Mechanics.

This is pretty naive. People can buy guns which have killed way more than predator drones. You could say that guns are all fun and games until someone starts shooting up a school. That doesnt mean we ban guns though or that they're a bad thing, which it seems like you're trying to imply.

Plus you're forgetting the huge life saving advantages of predator drones-- the ability to follow and monitor escaping criminals, the ability to analyze a large landscape or forest for a person who is either lost or trapped, and of course for monitoring important infrastructure. * and also 30 minute amazon deliveries

I am really sad at the number of people in this thread that appear to be against this, and seem to believe the U.S. government is the only entity capable of operating in the air safely.

Do you guys not realize that we already issue private pilot licenses? All the "concerns" displayed here are the same with a private airplane, but smaller with a drone. The odds of a Cessna operated by Mr. Joe Bob of going down is a lot higher than that of a drone.

The vast majority, almost all, crashes in aviation are the results of human error and the inability to correct.

Safety concerns? What about the multi-ton aircraft that have tons of fuel that fly across the skies thousands of times a day.

This is really ridiculous. A small drone might cause some damage...hell...might even cause a death or two...but I feel much safer having them fly around then these other giant death missiles in the air.

Not to mention that I bet drones, on average, are a lot more safe than planes are. Reliability with something a lot smaller and not ANY where near as complex has to be much safer.

Yes however you have to factor in the cost differential and applicability to the general populace.

I think we should look at the distinct difference between a "drone" and a "rc airplane". Lets face it, there are some incredibly large remote controlled airplanes, the difference being their limited range.

"Drones" with sattelite control capabilities etc, bring in a whole new spectrum. Considering a typical cell phone has enough capabilitiy to provide fully autonomous drone operations..... imagine millions of autonomous/cellphone reception area controlled drones doing whatever the owner wants them to do.

Yes disaster alley coming up.

Crashes and accidents haven't come anywhere near stopping the airline industry in any of it's uses.

You act like they are just going to completely de-regulate this and allow anyone to do it. You are either completely ignoring, or don't know, that on R/C planes you have to get a licenses to operate them after a certain size and/or frequency.

As with many things, there are rules and regulations that must be followed.

Your argument is about as strawman as the one above it.

This is basically a non-issue. First, millions of drones isn't that big of a number. You have hundreds of millions of people in the U.S. driving cars, and there are tons of accidents all the time anyways. This might be called a disaster, and yet cars aren't banned. That's only on a two dimensional plane, while drones have an extra degree of freedom on the z axis; this allows significantly more drones to fly in the air safely because they can fly at different heights and are much more likely to avoid collisions. This is also a non issue for airline jets, which are vastly larger than a predator drone.
