So ingesting a bird into a jet engine is identical to a mechanical object. Something that by design uses high strength materials like carbon fiber and possibly metals like aluminum or titanium. So you got the references to the FAA verified tests that equate bird engine ingestion to an equivalent amount of flying structure? Those test have already been completed and are in the regulations, right? And they were no more difficult to perform then the bird tests, because just like birds drones are made of materials that are very predictable.
And the flight characteristics of drones are identical to birds as well. I really love those nature shows where they describe how geese fly just like hummingbirds and can hover, go vertically up and down and then dart off in any direction. It shows the magnificence of nature that something that weighs multiple kilograms has the same manouverability as something that is only a few grams. And since pilots who fly fire drops are already use to hovering big birds, drones will never cause any confusion.
It never ceases to amaze me how Slashdot Pundits can take almost any problem and show that there is a simple minded solution that people with all kinds of experience, degrees and certifications just can't find. You are obviously a great mind and your country needs you. I suggest that you immediately drop whatever you're doing and go to the FAA headquarters in DC and tell them what you think. I bet that they will fire whoever else they have now and put you in charge of all drone related matters.
