9.4 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY & ANALYSIS REPORT 2 1. Study Design In this study, I will research the impact of FAA drone laws on aviation safety by answering the following question. How does the FAA drone laws impact on safety in the aviation industry? The null hypotheses are the FAA Drone operating laws have no effect on safety in the aviation industry. The alternative hypotheses is that Drone or UAS operators need be to be able to operate safely in the national airspace to prevent potential midair collisions with other aircraft. A midair collision could be the cause a massive amount of deaths and injuries to those in the manned aircraft and to people on the ground. (Campolettano & Bland, 2017). By following Federal Aviation Regulations, FAR, Part 107 UAS there will be a significant reduction of both ground and air mishaps; which will have a positive impact on aviation safety and UAS technology. (United States Federal Aviation Administration, 2019). This research will be conducted using non-experimental methods. I will use a ratio method comparing random simple samples of the drone operators before and after FAA drone regulations were established. I would analyze the data by using the ratios of mishaps before and after the drone laws were established. 2. Population and Sample There to many drone operators throughout the world, so my population would be limited to drones that reported some type of ground or air mishap. Since there are many mishaps that go unreported, I would have to use a sample of all reported drone incidents. So the appropriate sample would be a simple random sample. One way to collect the appropriate data is to search the FAA data bases for reported drone mishaps. I would for mishaps before the FAA passed
