While policymakers try to sort out whether the passenger drone is just a mere drone, a helicopter or a hybrid, it is worthwhile checking the CAAM website if you intend to pilot drones in Malaysian airspace. — Reuters

PETALING JAYA: The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) confirmed that an application to test a passenger drone prototype in the vicinity of the Subang airport was submitted a few days prior to the proposed test flight on Nov 21, but no authorisation was given.

“The (first) flight demonstration conducted earlier was also not authorised, and the matter is still pending investigation, ” said a CAAM spokesperson in response to queries from The Star on the widely talked demonstration for the “flying car”, a matter championed by Entrepreneur Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Yusof.
