New drone owners have been warned about the risk of flying the devices as soon as they unwrap them this Christmas.
Police and aviation authorities urged users to read up on strict rules about the remote-controlled gadgets before they took them for their first spin.
Those caught flying drones dangerously face an unlimited fine and up years of imprisonment .
Last week the Government announced plans to introduce a series of measures to crack down on reckless drone users following a string of near-misses with aircraft in recent months.
They must also be kept at least 500ft away from crowds and built up areas, and must not fly over such locations at any height.
“Both the police and the CAA are working closely to keep drone use within the law and will robustly prosecute any users who fly them in a way that puts others at risk.” Ministers are also considering introducing tougher penalties for flying in restricted areas such as near airports and prisons.
We could not reach the sacaa to get the legislation in regards to drones but would followup and make it available to readers online as soon as we acquire it.
