Public dialogue on drone use in the UK

Arpas-AGM_2

During late 2015 / early 2016, DfT and MoD undertook research into the public’s understanding of use of drones through a series of dialogues with members of the public across the UK regions in order to understand their views about drones.. The research looked into their attitudes towards:

  • current use
  • expectations
  • aspirations
  • concerns about future use

ARPAS-UK members were strongly involved in the development process and the dialogues themselves. The report on this research was published on 21st December 2016 and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/579550/drones-uk-public-dialogue.pdf   This research has been used to inform the DfT consultation on the safe use of drones in the UK, also published on 21st December 2016 (see article: the safe use of drone in the uk)
