Exploring  new technologies, strong emergence and relevance of new drone technologies into civil airspace;  and the means  the means adopted by ICAO to create SARPs  and achieve compliance of its law/rules which delivers wide ranging benefits to passengers, shippers, airlines and allied air transport users.

Coursework (50% weighting)

  1. The global Air Traffic profile (picture) is rapidly changing with new markets, new technologies, new stakeholders and – more recently – new pressures.

Of particular note is strong emergence and relevance of new drone technologies into civil airspace that has significantly gathered pace and momentum. 

ICAO statutorily, and in collaboration with member states is driving the pursuit of initiatives that supports a proportionate, risk and performance-based regulatory framework to enable drone services to flourish and – most importantly – to provide a safe, secure and efficient operational environment for manned and unmanned aviation.

Drones promise many benefits, but their growth also presents many challenges to today’s manned aviation industry, if it is not managed and integrated in the most appropriate way.

Unmanned area vehicles (drones), are characterized by many criteria – drone types (Fixed wing, Multirotor), level of autonomy, energy sources, size and weight, among others.

A local investor who intends to venture into a new emerging technology area of Drones, picked up bits of information scantily though, but is desirous of more comprehensive dossier; ahead of reaching this major business decision, has consulted a group in your Course.

Taking cognizance of Civil UAVs (drones), and using an appropriate drone model, synthesize its features focusing on payloads and other applications in a very structured way, and give your recommendations to address the concerns of the investor; noting advantages of Drones over traditional manned aviation platforms, justify the huge investment in the technology that may be required.  

  • Global standards are the foundation upon which a safe, secure, efficient and integrated global air transport system has been built and has transformed air travel from a high risk adventure into a routine part of daily life.

The most obvious role for global standards is in safety, and improving safety is the biggest issue.

Global standards however, go beyond safety. Consistent application of global standards in the regulatory world can also add tremendous value. The member states of 193 countries that cooperate through ICAO are currently working toward their agreed global safety target of zero fatalities by 2030, in tandem with the strengthening of their regulatory capacities, while pursuing a range of programmes and targets relevant to current core areas of global aviation safety planning, oversight, and risk mitigation. 

Given your understanding of ICAO structural framework arising from the Chicago Convention, and ICAO principles to which ICAO Member States are conversant with non-prescriptive principles that are consistent with international agreements, Articulate to your audience (a group of financiers seeking investments in Aviation) , the means adopted  to create SARPs  and achieve compliance of its law/rules which delivers wide ranging benefits to Stakeholders, passengers, shippers, airlines and allied air transport users particularly, since (ICAO) does not have the force of Law.
