use of drones

New rules to address drones


Speaking to Loop PNG, CASA Executive Manager Safety Regulation, Rueben O’Conner, says the regulations are aimed to minimise safety risks posed by drones.

O’Connor says the increasing use of different types of drones in the country is inevitable and proper regulation needs to be established. Currently there is no regulatory framework in place.

CASA is now inviting the general public and stakeholders in the aviation industry to respond to a proposed amendment to CASA safety rule 101 and the proposed new safety rule 102 regarding drones.
