Romania’s Air Code, which Parliament could approve this year, will legislate the use of drones, so that they will not endanger air traffic safety, Aeronautic Authority head Ioan Chirea told a PRIA Aviation conference.
‘Romania’s Air Code covers the activity of both the civil aviation and military aviation. At the same time, it takes into account the activity of light aircraft and that of unmanned flying objects, the so-called drones. The law details and enforces certain requirements for air space users. This law is very important, because we can conduct a search and rescue service, we know how to restrict the air space in certain areas and we can ensure air safety,’ Chirea pointed out.
He said that in the case of drone use, licences are very important to air safety, so that the aircraft flying in the area in question may know such objects are used there.
