* Government to bring regulations on operation of drone cameras
Sat, Jul 15, 2017, 10:13 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 15, Colombo: The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka has taken steps to implement the standards and regulations for using drones for aerial photography.

Authorities say information have been received on operating drones inappropriately and therefore a one day workshop has been held at the auditorium of the Civil Aviation Authority, Hunupitiya on Friday to formulate a legal system to regulate the drone use.

The Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation says that, in addition to obtaining the registration and approval of the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka, permission for drone use has to be obtained in future from the Ministry of Defense and Cultural Affairs, Archeology, Irrigation and Energy Authority in the areas the drone is being operated.

Operating a drone with a weight less than 200 g within less than 150 feet of the operator's territory for educational or hobby purposes does not require a permission or registration.

Owners of drone cameras over 200g have to register with the Civil Aviation Authority and obtain permission to fly the drone.
