Drone Collisions: Myths and Reality

Wed, Jul 24, 2019 - Wed, Jul 24, 2019
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM

Location: International Federal Pavilion

Presenter: Bill English


With thousands of unmanned aircraft (drones) now part of the airspace, the risk of midair collision is a major discussion. This presentation reviews NTSB case studies and how they actually turned out: confirmed as a collision, plausible that a drone could have been involved, or busted as something else altogether. Mr. English, who’s been with the NTSB for 20 years, is an Investigator-in-Charge in the Major Investigations Division of the Office of Aviation Safety and serves as the NTSB’s unmanned aircraft program lead.
