EASA has announced it will set up a taskforce to assess the risk of drones colliding with aircraft.

Outlined on Wednesday (May 4), the European regulator will chair a committee which will include representatives of aircraft and engine manufacturers.

Its aims include a review of “all relevant occurrences” including those collected by the European Member States; analysis of existing studies on the subject of impact between drones and aircraft; studying the vulnerabilities of aircraft and considering the possibility to do further research and perform tests.

Upon conclusion of the study at the end of July, EASA will publish its results before organising a workshop with stakeholders to present and discuss its findings and recommendations.
