What Is a UAV ?


An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), known in the mainstream as a drone and also referred to as an unpiloted aerial vehicle and a remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. ICAO classify unmanned aircraft into two types under Circular 328 AN/190:[1]

  • Autonomous aircraft – currently considered unsuitable for regulation due to legal and liability issues

  • Remotely piloted aircraft – subject to civil regulation under ICAO and under the relevant national aviation authority

Although we at SKY PERSECTIVES dont like to use the word "Drone" as it can conjur up the wrong impressions so we Like to call them our flying cameras.
