The authors of the article used the subject of research literature analysis method including the sources available on the official websites of the air transport inspecting authorities, as well as world organizations relating to the subject matter analysed in this article. Recent advances in new technologies are on the rise, which offers potential. The condition of law regulations as well as low awareness of the potential users is, however, problematic.
