Antigua and Barbuda is awaiting feedback from the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority on the country’s new drone legislation.
A source who wished to remain anonymous has told Observer Media that a draft was sent to the Authority about two months ago.
A copy was also sent to the Ministry of Legal Affairs at that time.
The well-placed source says the document is the work of a small committee comprising officials from different ministries, including Civil Aviation.
The group was set up last year.
He says Antigua and Barbuda has drawn from the drone legislation of other regional countries. The source however declined to reveal the territories.
He did say however that Antigua and Barbuda is also looking at international developments with drones to ensure its stays up to date.
The Cabinet agreed in April, that legislation and a licence should be created to govern the active use of drones. The Cabinet said the aim was to ensure safety in the skies above Antigua and Barbuda, in particular around sensitive locations such as the ports of entry.
