The Civil Aviation Regulators in most countries around the world are now approaching a level of uniformity towards establishing regulations, standards and best practices for RPAS operations. Despite existing guidelines, recreational or ‘hobbyists’ drone operators in many countries continue to make the media headlines with their violations into controlled airspace, breaches of sensitive areas, dangerous and annoying stunts at sporting events and public gatherings. The chaos in the recreational area, unfortunately, has a profound effect on the professional industry.

A contributing factor to the chaos is the lack of education about the legalities and safety concerns surrounding the use of RPAS, and users entering into the market with little or no aviation knowledge or training. The current perception of risk in this emerging industry is as subjective and varied among the academics as the policy makers and industry stakeholders alike. When considering using RPAS in the commercial environment, consequential risks must be calculated as part of the total risk value within the risk management framework. The consequential risks and indirect costs are by far the most concerning.
