    WTH seems like you need to have a boeing licence to fly a freakin drone . What rubbish

    No difference, its all about the money! They don’t realize that you can make "X" amount of money a year before it becomes a business. For all the Tourists going to South Africa, "The SACAA does not make any provisions for foreign operators at this time. This means that foreigners may not legally bring nor operate a RPAS/drone in South African airspace, regardless of the weight and size of the RPAS/drone. If you do, it may be considered illegal by local authorities.” Tell me I am reading this right?

    Its quite funny…you can fly your drone and take a photo of your uncles guest house for free…but if you charge your uncle for the photo even after the fact its intention was free, then you did it illegal and need a licence.

    Awesome!!!! Drones are the future!!

    People in the states don’t need to fly under an ROC….why do we in SA have to? This is clearly a money-making scheme without a doubt! Why must I share my income with another company when I perform jobs for money with my drone?

    So, when I use my Mavic as a hobbyist tourist in SA, that would be legal, right?

    This flipping "expensive" license issue is still just a money making racket……

    Lol, gosh why don’t we first get our drivers license issues sorted out, there’s so many people who are not capable drivers actually posing a threat on our roads, daily!

    The rules are rediculous! you cant even fly racing drones without breaking at least half the rules in one flight
