What drone operators need to know

The Civil Aviation Authority wants drone operators to know the rules of the sky before they take flight.

In February, new restrictions went into effect restricting drones in certain areas. For instance, it’s illegal to fly drones within three nautical miles of any of Cayman’s airports, and within one mile of prisons.

Also, operators should keep their drones at least 50 meters away from people, vehicles, buildings, and other structures.

“We’re not trying to restrict the operation of drones in totality, because we know that there are many commercial advantages to operating a drone. We want to work with the operators, we want to educate them on the safety aspects,” said CAA Director General Richard Smith.

Those who wish to use drones for commercial purposes must first have a trade and business license from the DCI, and secure permission from the CAA.
