EASA sets up task force to study UAV collision risks

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has created a task force to assess collision risks posed by small, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to commercial aircraft.

There have been an increasing number of UAV sightings by flight deck crews, particularly on the approaches to airports, and there are concerns the ingestion of a drone into an engine at a critical moment could pose a serious safety hazard.

EASA will chair the new task force, which will include representatives of aircraft and engine manufacturers. It will consult EASA’s member states and other relevant stakeholders, as well as foreign authorities, on the problem.

The agency has promised a swift conclusion to deliberations, setting the end of July as the deadline for published results. It will also organize a workshop with stakeholders to present and discuss findings and recommendations.
