Are Tethered drones legal in South Africa or are they under Part 101 for ROC oporations

Are Tethered drones legal in South Africa or do they fall under Part 101 drone licenses?

This is a question that comes up extremely often and many people have their ideas on this, most of them with a sales agenda.
Be careful and find the truth for yourselves and verify it before purchasing to avoid being on the wrong side of the law.

Unlike the UK and other countries South Africa’s CAA (Civil Aviation Association) views things differently and this is where many go wrong reading online about rules in other countries.

With the Global explosion of drones and UAV's comes the very real concern for the safety of "real" aircraft and airspace security. After all the new small drones are playing in the big boys airspace and are really guests in it. So how do you fly a drone as a guest in the airspace, prevent incidents and increase safety all around. This was the very question Purple Turtle UAV Drone Services asked ourselves as we move into the RPAS ROC operational field in Southern Africa.
