Number One should be common sense but then that can’t be put into law…

and so…

With the amendments, the enhanced regulatory framework will:

  • Prohibit the carriage of dangerous materials by unmanned aircraft, such as weapons, and any bio-chemical or radioactive material
  • Prohibit the discharge of any substance from unmanned aircraft without a permit
  • Require operators to obtain a permit to fly or operate an unmanned aircraft that weighs more than 7kg in total weight
  • Provide for the gazetting of security-sensitive locations as “protected areas,” where overflying by unmanned aircraft or taking of photographs from unmanned aircraft are prohibited without a permit
  • Prohibit the overflight of unmanned aircraft over “special event areas” declared for the venues of major events without a permit (for example, certain venues of the Southeast Asian Games 2015)
  • Require operators to obtain a permit to fly or operate an unmanned aircraft within 5km of an aerodrome regardless of height, or above 200 feet beyond 5km of an aerodrome, or within a restricted or danger area
