Russia notes rise in drone incidents
27 June 2017

The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, notes an increase in the number of illegal drone airpace infringements.

In 2016, 41 cases were recorded, while in the first five months of 2017, there were already 28 cases (compared to 12 for the same period in 2016). It appears that the persons who were arrested following illegal drone operations, were not aware of current Russian regulations.

Rosaviatsia will co-operate with the Russian Association of operators and developers of unmanned aircraft systems to further educate drone operators.

According to Russian regulations, unmanned aircraft may not be operated above an altitude of 150 m and away from airports and heliports.
