Drone op­er­a­tors must un­dergo proper train­ing

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

On the mat­ter of drone in­cur­sions close to con­trolled airspace in the UAE, it is un­re­al­is­tic to ex­pect an av­er­age user to un­der­stand the im­pli­ca­tions of en­ter­ing such airspace. ‘Proper’ pi­lots have to pass ex­ams in Avi­a­tion Law, which cov­ers the var­i­ous clas­si­fi­ca­tions of airspace (amongst other reg­u­la­tions). Whilst it is prob­a­bly not fea­si­ble to in­tro­duce a for­mal li­cens­ing sys­tem for hob­by­ists, ul­ti­mate pre­ven­tion can only mean pro­hi­bi­tion for un­der­age and ig­no­rant adults un­til for­mal train­ing has been un­der­taken. Eas­ier said than done. Leonard Ince, UAE
