I am a public safety drone pilot that often flies in challenging situations. After having a flight issue I began hunting to see if others had experienced similar issues. What I found was there was a lack of information on drone accidents or incidents others have had.

The intent is to gather information to assist drone pilots to make informed safety decisions before flight.

Please help make flying safer for all and submit a drone accident or incident report by clicking here. Please spread the word and encourage all pilots to contribute reports as well.
