Drone hits passenger plane in Canada for 1st time

17 October, 2017, 00:44 | Author: Terri Saunders

A drone that will detect problems with power lines flies over equipment at a Ameren Electric Company facility in Belleville, Illinois on September 8.

Despite all those sightings, however, an FAA spokesperson says the only actual drone-aircraft collision she knows of in the United States of America occurred last month and involved a US Army helicopter. And while there have been reports of pilots claiming that drones crashed into their aircraft in the United States, FAA officials confirmed to The Post that such a crash has never been verified in the United States.

"If a drone were to hit the window of a cockpit and incapacitate the pilot, or were to damage in any way an engine, this could have catastrophic results", Garneau said at a news conference. "That drone should not have been there".

The Skyjet flight was heading to Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport when the drone hit it on 12 October. The aircraft suffered minor damage and no one was injured.

Canada's independent safety investigator agency, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, tells FlightGlobal it is "assessing... and gathering information" about the incident and could decide later this week whether to open an investigation. "I would like to remind drone operators that endangering the safety of an aircraft is extremely unsafe and a serious offence", Garneau said.

Man arrested for assault at Eagles game
The incident took place during the team's loss against the Philadelphia Eagles at North Carolina's Bank of America Stadium. Fox 46 Charlotte reported that the victim filed a police report and was treated at the stadium for bruises and scratches.


As is stands, anyone found to have endangered the safety of an aircraft could face a $25,000 fine or prison time.

The Canadian Government is reporting that a drone struck a plane while flying over Qu├ębec, a Canadian City.

The incident happened at an altitude of approximately 450 meters and three kilometers (1.8 miles) from the airport.

So far in 2017, 1,596 drone incidents have been reported to the department in 2017.

Around the world, there is growing concern about potential collisions between drones and larger aircraft, including passenger jets.
