27 September in Russia will finally come into force the requirement to put on record drones weighing more than 250 grams.
As reported by “Kommersant-FM”, to put the drone on the account, its owner will need to send an application to the Federal air transport Agency through the state services portal or by mail. The statement will need to specify personal data, information about the manufacturer and some specifications of the device.
“It’s like registering cars and boats: the owners should put them on record, putting your data. In the case of drones within ten days after the application should receive notification that registration has been validated, indicating the number, which is assigned to the drone. This number must be marked on the aircraft, so that in case if he will do the wrong thing, will cause someone damage, then its owner could prosecute,” – said the head of the company “Aerokon” Eduard Baghdasaryan.
According to sales Manager of the store CopterShop Novel Shalygina, it is still unclear whether mandatory registration of drones to a drop in demand for popular drones whose weight exceeds the established threshold of 250 grams.
The owners of the drones, who will not register their drones face fines for their launch. So, the flight of unregistered Quad in a deserted place away from populated areas may cost 2 thousand rubles. If we are talking the launch of a drone within the ring road, then the penalty will be from 20 to 50 thousand rubles. Companies will then have to pay at least 250 thousand rubles.
We will remind, in October 2017 passenger Beechcraft King Air 100 canadian airline Skyjet while approaching the airport of Quebec was faced with an Amateur drone. The incident became the world’s first officially reported case of a drone collision with a passenger plane. As a result of collision at a height of 730 metres, the aircraft received minor damage and landed safely at the destination airport.
