Digital Sky Platform launched – India to start registration of drones, pilots, and operators Registration portal for online permission.

 

In August 2018, India had announced the release of its Civil Aviation Regulations (CAR) to enable safe flying of RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems) in India.

Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS), also known as drones, are a technology platform with wide-ranging applications.

Digital Sky Platform:

  • New features will be developed to ease the process of flying for users.
  • To provide oversight to security agencies.
  • It is envisioned that in the future Digital Sky Service Providers (DSPs) will be extending the functionality of the platform through Application Program Interfaces (APIs).

Permissions to fly in different zones:

To get permissions, RPAS operators or remote pilots will have to file a flight plan.

  • Green zones – Flying in the green zones, requires only intimation of the time and location via the portal or the app.
  • Yellow zones – Permission will be required for flying in yellow zones.
  • Red zones – Flights will not be allowed to fly.

If an RPAS does not have permission to fly, it will not be allowed to take-off under the policy of No-Permission-No-Takeoff (NPNT).
