Drone operators could face further restrictions

Tue, 18 Jun 2019

Drone owners on the island could face more restrictions as the Civil Aviation Authority is consulting on new rules.

Drones could be banned from flying at night, more than 400 feet high or 500 metres away from their owners, under the new suggestions.

It would also be illegal to fly a drone weighing more than four kilos without special permission.

People can submit their views through the government's website.
