From the UAS Interim Policy document curtesy our friendly Civil Aviation Authoroty..... downloadable from their website.....
3.2.2. The introduction of UAS into non-segregated airspace will require the SACAA
to process applications for operational approvals. These approvals are
required due to the fact that unmanned aircraft (UA) are not presently
compliant with various sections of the South African Civil Aviation
Regulations (CAR) and, therefore, require an alternate means of compliance.
Most notably, the lack of an on-board pilot requires an alternate method of
complying with the requirements of regulation 91.06.7 of CAR Part 91, Right
of Way (FAA: “see-and-avoid” provisions of 14 CFR 91.113, Right-of-Way
Rules: Except Water Operations).
4.2.1. For UAS other than visual range light UAS (see Section 2 of this Interim
Policy), and for the purposes of this Interim Policy, the two methods of
approval are either a certificate of waiver or authorisation (COA) or the
issuance of a certificate of airworthiness (standard, restricted or special
category) in terms of regulation 21.08.1 of CAR Part 21, Categories of
Certificates of Airworthiness. Unless otherwise stated, recommended
procedures and guidance in this Interim Policy, other than for light UAS,
apply to both methods.
4.3.1. Applications for a COA are only accepted from state entities.
4.4. Certificates of Airworthiness
4.4.1. Commercial applicants are required to apply for a standard, restricted or
special category certificate of airworthiness in terms of regulation 21.08.1 of
CAR Part 21. Standard and restricted category certificates of airworthiness
will be issued for type certified UAS, while special category certificates of
airworthiness (experimental or special flight permit) will be issued to non-type
Sorry have been out of commission for some time to respond to this.
Our view(South African view ) your country has become a police state and introduces to many laws
We don't have such strict laws and are able to experiment,and as long as we are responsible we dont see a need to stifle development by laws.
