A drone is the more familiar term for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an unmanned aircraft system (UAS). It refers to an aircraft of any size or type that is able to fly by itself without a pilot on board. The safe use of drones implies that, when flying a drone for any purpose, the user has to abide by the laws and guidelines of the country or city concerned. These guidelines can generally be obtained from the national aviation authority or local city council. This issue will also examine situations in which drones are used when it is considered too risky or difficult for a human pilot.
