Something is better than nothing

The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of India

Has issued draft guidelines on operation of Civil UnmannedAircraft System (UAS) (page no 38).

Drones will be issued unique identi cation numbers(UIN) so that they can be ‘tracked’ easily.

All civil UA operations at or above 200 ft AGL inuncontrolled airspace will require Operator Permit.

Earlier there was a blanket ban on  flying of UAS by non-government agencies.

Now they can  fly provided they meet certain conditions.

A positive step towards UAS policy has been taken.

And, this is a welcome step.
