DUBAI – Dubai has suspended permits and no-objection certificates for drone-related activities in the emirate “until further notice”.
The suspension applies to existing permits and NOCs, new permits and NOCs, as well as pending applications for drone-related activities.
The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has sent an advisory about the suspension of permits and NOCs to those who previously received them.
“Please note also that new and pending applications for all drone-related activities are currently put on hold,” according to DCAA.
Flying drones or unmanned aerial vehicles in Dubai is strictly regulated, and drone operators need an NOC from the DCAA.
The suspension of permits came after a suspected drone attack in Abu Dhabi on Monday killed three people and injured six others after it sparked a fire and subsequent explosions at fuel tankers of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s fuel depot in the Mussafah area. ICA/Expat Media
