Forsythe also pointed out that the majority of UAS manufacturers are not aircraft manufacturers. “They are using consumer-grade components, not commercial- or military grade-components, so there are going to be failures. You get what you pay for. If you buy a $1,000 drone and use it every day for commercial activity, expect a failure.”

One UAS risk voiced by Richard Morris, attorney at Fowler White Burnett, is that while the FAA limits the majority of UAS operations to a maximum altitude of 400 feet, manned aircraft are reporting seeing UAS at altitudes much higher than 400 feet. Morris tied this statistic to a 2011 study of 71 business aviation accidents featuring loss of control in flight (LOC-I) that found 63 percent of these accidents began at less than 1,000 feet. “These incidents typically occur on takeoff, approach to landing and on go-arounds,” said Morris. “So you can see the potential conflict between lots of drones up to 400 feet and an aircraft trying to land.” 

As part of his LOC-I presentation, Morris identified proposed FAR Part 23 changes that could reduce the number of LOC-I incidents overall, including new verbiage in Sections 23.200 and 23.215 requiring warnings to improve pilot awareness of imminent LOC-I.
