      The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE) have announced the results of a study seeking to bring a better understanding of the physical damage associated with the midair collision of a small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) and manned aircraft. According to ASSURE, although the FAA [ ]. Aircraft normally cannot stop in mid-air to ascertain their position at leisure. Aircraft are safety-limited by the amount of fuel they can carry; a surface vehicle can usually get lost, run out of fuel, then simply await rescue. There is no in-flight rescue for most aircraft. Additionally, collisions with .

      The same year recorded three notable mid-air collisions. The first occurred when an Air Force C (DC-6) collided with a Navy P2V patrol bomber over Los Angeles, killing The second midair was near Las Vegas when an Air Force F Super Sabre cut through a United DC-7 at 21, feet, leaving 49 dead.

Almost all modern large aircraft are fitted with TCAS, which is designed to try to prevent mid-air collisions.

The system, based on the signals from aircraft transponders, alerts pilots if a potential collision with another aircraft is e its limitations, it is believed to have greatly reduced the chance of a mid-air collision.

Most midair collisions have occurred between small general aviation aircraft operating under VFR. However, the report also states that there were near midair collision reports in alone, and that air carriers were involved in 68 of these cases.

The recent collision over Denver is unique for many reasons. First, it occurred at night, with the possibility that ground lighting affected both pilots' ability to see and avoid the other. During andall midair collisions involving general aviation aircraft occurred during day VFR conditions.

Studies of midair collisions reveal certain definite warning patterns. It may be surprising to learn that nearly all midair collisions occur during daylight hours and in VFR conditions.

Perhaps not so surprising is that the majority happen within five miles of an airport, in the areas of greatest traffic concentration, and usually on warm. Subject: Pilots’ Role in Collision Avoidance ; Date: 6/28/ AC No: D.
