DJI Comments on Drone Collision in Quebec

The world’s main drone producer, DJI, has launched a press release concerning the not too long ago reported drone collision with a passenger jet in Quebec.

In what appears to be a response to not solely this incident however the not too long ago reported discovering of components of a DJI drone on a BlackHawk helicopter in New York after one other collision, DJI’s response emphasizes the instruments that the corporate already has in place to forestall incidents.

The assertion says that DJI “stands ready to assist Canadian aviation authorities as they investigate a report that a small passenger plane struck a drone while landing in Quebec City.”

“No details of the reported collision have been disclosed, and DJI is unaware whether any of its products may have been involved. DJI drones are programmed by default to fly no higher than 120 meters, and the Quebec City airport is restricted in DJI’s geofencing system.”

The assertion says that DJI takes security critically and “absolutely condemns” harmful drone operations.

“DJI has pioneered many key technological advances to help ensure that drones can safely share the skies with traditional aircraft, including GPS-based geofencing to help drone pilots steer clear of sensitive areas, automatic return-to-home features for drones that lose connection or have low battery strength, and sense-and-avoid systems to help steer clear of obstacles.”

The assertion goes on to deal with Canadian drone laws.

“DJI supports the creation of a simple and reasonable system to register drones in Canada, coupled with a strong educational component so drone pilots can easily learn how to fly safely and responsibly.”

“DJI discusses its safety approach for Canadian skies in comments delivered last week on Transport Canada’s draft drone regulations, which DJI believes are not aligned with international best practices for encouraging safe and responsible drone use.
