The Question: Can I Sell My Drone Here in Dubai?

Posted on

I have a drone I want to sell. I understand there are restrictions in place now with regards to their use. Am I allowed to sell it to anyone?

Answer: Law No. 7 of 2015, on aviation safety, authorizes the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCCA) to specify the airspace for general aviation and the rules governing the use of a laser, fireworks, light beams, and drones. According to it, selling or buying drones is not illegal in Dubai. However, there are strict regulations pertaining to their use which should be followed to avoid breaking any safety regulations. Flying drones fitted with cameras in residential areas is a punishable offence as per the Federal Criminal Code as such acts breach the privacy of people and threaten their lives.
