Regulated drones to buzz over Dominican skies soon
Santo Domingo.- The buzzing of drones over Dominican Republic skies is no longer the stuff of science fiction, as their flights will range from taking high resolutions pictures and video from above to messengers delivering packages and even pizzas quickly and cheaply.
Civial Aviation (IDAC) director Alejandro Herrera said drones will face regulation to ensure safety, and revealed that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is working on regulation protocols, as a guide which local authorities are expected to use as a reference.
“This is a new process, not only for us, ICAO itself is starting the process to create a regulation. I think we will examine it to adopt it here shortly,” Herrera said in statement to mark International Aviation week with a seminar on Thursday and Friday.
