Aviation ministry legalizes flying drones in India
The citizens have been allowed to fly drones across the country. The Civil Aviation Ministry has prepared a rule in this regard and it will be effective from December 1, 2018. But some conditions have been imposed by the government on the use of the drone.
This rule was prepared by the Ministry of Civil Aviation regarding the use of remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS). According to this rule, the airspace is divided into three rules. In the first red zone (you do not have permission to fly in the Red Zone), you can not dodge the airport, international border, Delhi’s Vijay Chowk, the state secretariat and other security points. Drones are also allowed in Yellow Zone (controlled gas sector) and green zone (allowing for drones to fly). You can also use the drone up to 400 feet in height, it has been explained by the rules. Similarly, the five categories of drones have also been set. Nano drone – 250 g, Microdrone – 250 kg to 2 kg, Mini drone – 2 kg to 25 kg, Small drone – 25 kg to 150 kg and Large drone – 150 kilos. Specifically, the drones are about to be registered first. You will then get permission through the mobile app. Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has announced this decision.
