The Singapore Unmanned Aircraft Systems Community – a part of AAIS – held an industry focus group discussion on UAS registration, co-hosted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). The session on 11 July, sought industry inputs on the proposed policy for the registration of drones. Close to 40 participants representing 30 UAS companies were in attendance.

The session kicked off with a welcome address delivered by Chairman of the UAS Advisory Panel (UASAP), Mr Timothy de Souza. Set up in May 2019, the UASAP was formed to help CAAS review and recommend enhancements to Singapore’s UAS regulatory framework, and promote a safe and responsible culture for the use of UAS.

Following a briefing by CAAS, participants broke out into groups to discuss various aspects of the proposed UAS registration policy. The inputs received will be considered by the UASAP in making its recommendations. We thank CAAS and all participants for a fruitful and engaging session.
