The integration of drones into society has attracted unprecedented attention throughout the world. The change, for aviation, has been described as being equally as big as the arrival of the jet engine. This book examines the issues that surround this change, for our society and the legal frameworks that preserve our way of life. Drones in Society takes the uninitiated on a journey to understand the history of drones, the present day and the potential future in order to demystify the media hype.

Written in an accessible style, Drones in Society will appeal to a broad range of interested readerships, among them students, safety regulators, government employees, airspace regulators, insurance brokers and underwriters, risk managers, lawyers, privacy groups and the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) industry generally. In a world first, this book is a light and interesting read; being both relatable and memorable while discussing complex matters of privacy, international law and the challenges ahead for us all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Each author is an expert in UASs. Lead author, Ron Bartsch, has worked in the aviation industry for more than 30 years and is a former director of the Australian Association of Unmanned Systems. This is reflected in the fascinating detail they provide about the technology's development and its end-use applications...A well written book, it provides an accurate account of the good, bad and ugly uses for UASs."

Jon Lorimer, IOSH Magazine
