UAV technology is trickling down to benefit smaller aircraft’s safety margins
Technology being developed to make unmanned aircraft more reliable could increase the safety of general aviation. Flight-control systems that would allow UAVs to survive damage could provide an emergency “get home” capability for light aircraft. Ultimately, advanced flight controls could allow airliners to be operated safely by a single pilot. These are the beliefs of David Vos, who has brought such “out of the box” thinking to Rockwell Collins since the established avionics manufacturer ...
