16feb2016The International Air Transport Association (IATA), a commercial airline association that helps develop policy on critical aviation issues, is concerned about the “real and growing threat” consumer drones pose to commercial aviation.

Tony Tyler, director-general and CEO of the IATA, told an audience at the Singapore Airshow that there needs to be a sensible approach to regulation and a pragmatic method of enforcement for those who disregard rules
and regulations.

The IATA’s main concern is drones flying at low altitudes near airports, but the group also wants to ensure the radio spectrum used to control the drones does not interfere with air traffic
control systems.

This is the first time I have seen a comment about spectrum  or spectrum interference in this context. As far as pragmatic enforcement a caning in Singapore should work just fine.
