This study is an analysis of differences between unmanned and manned aviation
industry safety. A survey tool was used to collect safety perception, risk perception, and
organizational safety culture data from various individuals throughout the aviation
industry. In general, no difference existed between the unmanned and manned groups,
indicating an overall safe operating environment for aviators. While the results of this
limited study show no overall difference between groups, it provides a baseline study for
which future data, collected from a more mature industry, can be obtained.
