Flying an unregistered drone in Ghana could send you to jail for 30 years
Monday, July 11, 2016
Ghana’s Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) is starting to take drones seriously—very seriously. It has issued new directives on drone ownership and operations, under which operating an unregistered drone (or “Remotely Piloted Aircraft System,” as the authority calls it) can incur a jail term of “up to 30 years.”
Piloting a drone will also require a license. The authority has kicked off the process of registering all drones in the country.
