UK drone collision study didn't show airliner window penetration


This might deter a few idiots from flying a cheapo drone near airports and accidentally hitting a plane, but luckily these are mainly plastics and will cause negligible damage..

Hobbyists and professionals with expansive heavy drones will follow the rules, because they do already and don't want their precious toy being broken..

Those who want to fly something heavy into an aeroplane will do so anyway registration or not, no amount of legislation will prevent that, so active security measures are needed.
