THAILAND DRONE LAWS

The latest drone laws and regulations in Thailand announced by Ministry of Transport is now available in English

Ministry of Transport has finally released the English translated drone laws and regulations of Thailand.

Under this laws and regulations, all drone pilots who fly drones in Thailand must obtain permission(i.e. licence) from CAAT(Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand) for each drone model(*) if the aircraft has camera.
(For example, the permission is required for Phantom4 and Mavic Pro separately)

Earlier, the drone laws and regulations in Thailand was provided in Thai only, which had caused a lot of Non-Thai drone pilots unclarity and vagueness of where/how/when to fly drones in Thailand.

Although the translation is stated as “Unofficial Translation Edited by Legal Department”, this would be a huge step for Thailand and pilots living in this country to utilize drones for both personal and industrial purposes.

The English version of the laws and regulations can be downloaded via the below link.
