The language of drones
04 January 2018

At IAIN we are pleased to make available a glossary of terms used in connection with drone operations: The Language of Drones: Enabling dialogue between Surveyors and Pilots.
This valuable document's chapters provide a quick guide to names and an explanation of terms supported by two appendices one of which indicates the components of a typical multi-rotor unit. Others details the Air Navigation Order regarding the legal basis of such operations.

Publication here has been possible with the kind permission of Nottingham University.
