BAN ON DRONES FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY
The Ministry of National Security is reminding members of the public that the use of drones is prohibited within the city of Port-of-Spain.
In a press release yesterday the Ministry noted preparations for tomorrow’s Independence Day celebrations and referred to T&T Civil Aviation Act and the T&T Civil Aviation Authority Regulations, which precludes the use of the popular unmanned aircraft within the capital and within five km of Piarco and Arthur NR Robinson airports.
The release noted that drone should not be operated during open air functions and over mass public gatherings.
“Drones should not be flown at a height greater than 121 metres or 400 feet above the ground. Drones should not be operated in a manner that may endanger persons or property,” the release said.
It also advised members of the public to refer to the authority’s regulations on the use of drones on its website: www.caa.gov.tt/unmanned-aircraft-systems-uas-drones/
