The number of drone accidents is declining according to EASA

| |

According to the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) annual safety report, the number of drone accidents is declining in the EU.

The findings indicate that since 2018, the incidence of UAVs involved in total accidents and those qualified as “serious” had decreased from two in 2019 and one in 2020 to zero last year.

The gradual reduction of EASA incident or accident figures involving drones probably relies in good part on the increasing sophistication of object detection and avoidance sensors on craft themselves, as well as maturing piloting experience and skills across the EU.

The potential for an airborne collision between an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and other aircraft is an area of growing safety concern, due to the increasing accessibility of UAS.
