Drones: the future of aviation?
Drones have become a subject of great interest by aviation experts and by simply curious: more and more are the events and the debates dedicated to these “flying objects” around which there is still a great mystery. But what is exactly a drone?
In short it is a remotely piloted aircraft, characterized by the absence of the human pilot on board: its flight is controlled by the computer on board in the aircraft, under the remote control of a navigator or pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.
But what are the applications of this technology that is developing faster and faster and in a capillary way? Surely the use in the military sector should not be underestimated but the civil uses are many: in addition to the security of the citizen, the drones are already regularly used for the preservation of flora and fauna in danger, for the search and rescue operations of lost people. They are also used to study earthquakes and their effects on the territory foreseeing the hydrogeological instability and the resulting risks to the population.
Far from being used for transport of civilians, the applications are however constantly changing and we certainly can not say that today the potential of the drones have been fully exploited: the hope for the future is that these devices are increasingly being used to improve people’s lives and to serve them better. What a drone will do during the future is unimaginable today, and man alone can decide whether to use it in the best way!
