Thread: AAIB Operation Of Drones
30/06/2017 13:46:41

If they had an exemption then surely they would have stated that in their report. In our litigious society how would an insurance company perceive the use of the drone. I would suspect their opening gambit would be "so were you using the craft for recreational purposes "

I raised this because I was taken aback by the AAIB seemingly circumventing the CAAs rules. However helpful and no matter how profession the operators are they are not flying for recreation.

As a aeronautical engineering technician I find the credibility of the AAIB called into question by those actions.

Which is a shame as the actual use of drones is a useful tool to have in aircraft accident investigation.

the document linked is effectively reproduced in the Air Accidents Investigation Branch Annual Safety Review 2016, which includes the original statement regarding recreational use. Should the AAIB not adopt the police model for drone use?

My point is that it is not by any means recreational- whilst I agree that any means of assisting the AAIB is a good thing.

As the AAIB is a government organisation, the operators are being paid for their services, and as the end product is a government report then whilst the gain is not financial there certainly is commercial gain

Noticed this little snippet in the Air Accidents Investigation Branch Annual Safety Review 2016

"Under UK regulations, the AAIB is not classed as a commercial operator flying for reward so can operate drones at accident sites under the standard regulations for recreational users."

Whilst this seems to be within the spirit of the law, is this within the spirit of the law.

Tom, more likely that having received several major head impacts resulted in loss of memory. The report indicate the pilots helmet probably prevented fatal head injuries.

I'm thinking of the Shuttleworth Sea Hurricane scheme (might not add a hook though) Hmm then again

Mostly Passive ECM on a Chinook, more likely Military IFF or RAD Alt.

Its not the RAF who are divesting themselves of airfields its the DIO. And to be fair to the Station Commanders they will listen to reason and it helps if events that benefit the local economy.
