Oman’s Public Authority for Civil Aviation supports Drones Workshop in February

Officially supported by the Public Authority for Civil Aviation, the Drones Oman Workshop and Live Demonstration will take place from 27-28 February 2017 in Muscat, Oman, to help you learn more about the applications of drones and the regulations governing the use of this technology across various sectors such as construction, transportation, energy and emergency services.

Given the potential of UAVs, Oman’s Public Authority for Civil Aviation, National Survey Authority, Royal Oman Police and Royal Oman Airforce have been taking huge steps towards releasing drone regulations in Oman. This 2-day workshop was developed to provide updates on these regulations in Oman and the rest of the GCC, identify innovations in drones technologies and provide an in-depth understanding of the various applications of these machines in order to help companies kick-start their drone operations.
