6 June 2017, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Purple Turtle Aviation is proud to announce our partnership with Blue Vigil USA bringing Tethered Drone/UAV/RPAS technologies to Southern Africa.As all drone and UAV pilots know the most annoying and limiting factor is battery life, just when you start to get the pictures/data you need its time to come in for a battery change.
What does the law say about drones in South Africa. What can you do and if you can do it where can you do it?
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.
