SINGAPORE – Aviation regulators in the Asia-Pacific region need to collaborate on a regional framework to regulate the use of unmanned aircraft, said Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore Director-General Kevin Shum.
“This would help avoid the development of a patchwork of vastly different regulatory regimes, which will make it difficult for users and manufacturers to operate,” he said.
He suggested that collaboration between the various bodies could be through joint working groups or annual conferences.
