It seems patently clear that the uncrewed aerial vehicle industry will go from strength to strength in the coming years. But, as with many new technologies, regulations can’t keep up with the rate of development.

Whether you are on an iPad, desktop or smartphone, you can read the magazine for free online.

In this issue, we look at a new report that calls for the UK Government to reassess the UAV sector, investing in the technology and radically rethinking the management of airspace for both crewed and uncrewed aircraft.

Elsewhere, we find out why the aviation sector has been vital when it comes to the humanitarian aid efforts following the Turkey-Syria earthquake, speak to UK firm Aerocloud about how it is looking to disrupt legacy technology in airports, and learn the importance of runway maintenance to combat rubber deposits from aircraft tyres.

For this, and much more, read on. And don’t forget to follow us on twitter @Airport_Mag as well.
