Abstract: The future challenges and opportunities in aviation are encapsulated by the projected billion dollar unmanned aerial system (“UAS”) or “drone” industry. While public perception is predominated by a militarized narrative of UAS applications, the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”) is showcasing the technology’s versatility and welfare-enhancing and humanitarian uses through its “Vision 2021” initiative. This paper evaluates existing UAS aviation laws and regulatory regimes abroad to conclude that issues of airspace management, safety, and security must be managed if the UAE’s proposed model for civil UAS functionality is to be exportable to the private sector globally, whatever its success achieved domestically.
