A potential collusion at Warsaw airport between a Lufthansa plane and a drone highlights the need for regulation Przemyslaw Szablowski
Speaking of the problem of illegal flying of RPASs [Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems], Joe Urli, chair of the Australian Certified UAV Operators Association (ACUO), said: 'It's just a question of time and we'll have many lawyers looking at multiple fatality lawsuits as a result of illegal RPAS use.' The Lufthansa Embraer ERJ-195 was in the final stages of descent at Warsaw, having flown from Munich, when - the crew say - they narrowly avoided a drone.
