Are drones a true menace to General Aviation aircraft, and what's being done to keep us safe? And, are drone strikes more of a threat than bird strikes?
There's been a lot of talk about the danger of drones, and how they're endangering the lives of pilots. But is that really the case? What's being done to keep us at a safe distance from drones, and are they more dangerous than birds?
We talked to three industry experts to get their opinion: Jon Resnick, Policy Lead for DJI, the world's largest drone manufacturer, Ben Marcus, co-founder of AirMap.io and founder of NoFlyZone.org, as well as Al Palmer, Director of the University of North Dakota's UAS Research Center. Listen in and see what they have to say about the future of drones, and if they're a real threat to aviation.
