"In ensuring safety measures are adhered to, King Shaka International Airport
calls on drone operators to abide by the applicable laws that govern the flying
or operating of drones or remotely piloted aircraft."
encourage community members to be vigilant with the use of RPAS and to report
any unauthorised activities. Drone operators should also educate themselves on
