The association representing global airlines is scheduled to meet with the International Civil Aviation Organization tomorrow – to discuss creating a joint international registry for drones.
The director general of the International Air Transportation Association says airlines are concerned about drones – from a safety perspective.
IATA vice-president Gilberto Lopez-Meyer says a global registry is required – because new entrants like Amazon and Google are pushing the use of drones.
He says getting an agreement to establish a single registry – that would allow authorities to track unmanned aircraft will be difficult – but is feasible.
