MCO: Drones should stay home too

Drones are being deployed by authorities to monitor MCO compliance and even to sanitise Covid-19 hotspot areas. — NORAFIFI EHSAN/The Star

The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) said drone users need to be more compliant with flying regulations during the movement control order (MCO), as those flouting the rules could endanger the public.

It said all pilots of drones and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) need to get the go-ahead from them before doing any surveillance, broadcasting, commercial or recreational flying.
