Drones tested for search and rescue

Phil Hanson, Aviation Technical Assurance Manager at the MCA, said: 'The MCA is always ready to embrace working with new technology - especially if that technology could enhance search and rescue efficiency, save more lives and reduce risk to our personnel.There is significant evidence emerging from our overseas counterparts and more locally from UK mountain rescue teams indicating that drones can play a crucial role in emergency response. With this in mind, we welcome the opportunity to take part in these emerging trials to test the viability of drone technology with other rescue resources. It's too early to comment on how we will move forward from the trials but one thing we all agree on is that drones cannot replace helicopters, coastguard rescue teams or lifeboats. However, it is entirely possible that they could be an additional tool to use in search and rescue.'
