Studies have abounded theorizing about the results of a direct drone hit to a passenger aircraft.  Conclusions have estimated the threat level of a drone collision at anywhere from “minimal” to “catastrophic.”  Now the FAA has released the results of the study performed by the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE) and the official conclusion is… it depends.
Although the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is not yet able to definitively address these concerns, studies by a consortium of leading universities, through the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE), have begun to bring better understanding to the physical damage associated with small unmanned aircraft – or drones – colliding midair with commercial and business aircraft,” says the FAA press release.
Researchers also performed engine impact simulations on the fan section of an existing business-jet-sized, turbofan-engine model  – showing what would happen if a drone flew straight into the engine of a plane.
The results showed what most researchers already knew – that the effects of a collision would vary based upon the size, weight and density of the drone and the speed of the aircraft. Smaller drones and lower speeds result in smaller potential damage.  While somewhat inconclusive, the official study results do pave the way for standards such as already exist for airplanes to protect from bird strikes, and provide a basis for regulatory decisions."
