Terra Drone Indonesia once again made history after successfully obtaining a license to operate a long-distance mission or better known as Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), issued by the Directorate of Airworthiness & Aircraft Operations (DAAO), Director General of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia.

By obtaining this permit, Terra Drone Indonesia will be able to fully utilize the maximum potential use of drones, especially for missions such as surveys, surveillance, and patrols.

As is known, the Ministry of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia already has rules that regulate drones, which is Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR) Part 107, governing the small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) with a maximum weight of 25 kilograms. This regulation was introduced through Peraturan Menteri Perhubungan Nomor 163 Tahun 2015, which means it has been in effect since 5 years ago. The regulation explains many things, including the restrictions that drone pilots must follow such as the prohibition of flying over crowds, the prohibition of flying in a state of intoxication, and the prohibition of flying out of sight (Beyond Visual Line of Sight / BVLOS).
