Nationwide no-fly zone for unregistered drones

Nationwide no-fly zone for unregistered drones

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has ordered that all drones must be registered before they can take off again.

The move is an attempt to bring the unmanned aircraft under control after only 350 drones have been registered with the Civil Aviation Training Centre, despite their growing popularity.

Following a meeting about the issue, NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tantasith said that both owners and sellers are required to register their drones within 90 days.

The registration can be made at all NBTC offices, police stations and the centre, with an ID card, the serial number and a photo of the drone required for the process, he added.

Violators can be fined up to 100,000 baht and jailed up to five years under the Communications Radio Act.
