The Latest News From the IAA

IAA warns against flying drones during emergency response.

28 Aug 2023
The actions of the drone operator at Mountain Road, Clonmel. Co. Tipperary last Friday evening were an invasion of privacy and posed a flight safety risk. 
This activity is also in direct contravention of the drone regulations. Remote pilots and drone operators are required, by European regulation, to avoid areas where an emergency response effort is ongoing. This is safety critical as it could hinder possible aerial support and to protect the privacy rights of persons involved in the emergency event.

An IAA investigation has commenced and we are in contact with An Garda Síochána on the matter.
