Interesting study. Some snippets:

"This report investigates the role of drones as part of the future transport mix. It specifically addresses the issues policy makers face in engaging with the emerging private drone sector. Drones for recreational purposes are not part of this study [emphasis added]."

Policy makers need to focus on the impact of the potentially millions of “drone ports” and their integration into the transport system, cities and society as a whole."

and "... also ensure that research programmes and funds will not look at technological questions in isolation but promote a more pro-active approach towards questions regarding the environmental, economic and social impacts of drones overall."

"...civilian drones are in fact part of a system that consists of the aircraft itself, guidance, navigation and control elements like radio transmitters, onboard sensors and software that together form the operation system and a human remote pilot or an Artificial Intelligence controller [emphasis added] depending on the level of automation of the drone system and the data link communication architecture."

"The general population may not be ready yet to fly on a pilotless aircraft (though much of current flight is already automated), but as with technological advances in self driving cars, buses and trucks, drone technologies are quickly moving from science fiction to providing services in the real world."... "Eventually fully automated drones could replace manned aircraft, especially for the transport of passengers..."

"The rapid proliferation of drones for leisure use [recreational drones] can serve as an early indicator for the readiness of markets to embrace drones for commercial transport services. However, it also serves as a reminder that large-scale deployment of drone fleets may be slowed down by growing public concerns." etc...
