Invitation to negotiations
On the 27th of June, the aviation environment met at the VII Aviation Breakfast, the main theme of which was the Central Airport project.
Organized by the Polish Aviation Market Portal (PRTL.pl), the industry breakfast was an opportunity for the environment to discuss the opportunities, constraints, solutions, and above all, the advisability of the implementation of the Central Airport project. Opinions of experts in this matter are divided, but the main conclusion of yesterday's lively discussion is the need to create a strategy for Poland's air transport, since it in fact may be the beginning for analytical work for the CPL (Central Airport).
Aviation Breakfast was held on a one-off basis at the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency. Deputy Minister Jerzy Szmit from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction was listening in to the discussion.
DRONES DURING HOLIDAYS - WHERE CAN AND CAN'T WE FLY ...
The holiday flying season has started. The sky will be crowded, not only thanks to charter the flights to hot countries, but also with the launch of thousands of drones, which are especially popular in Poland. It is even said that Poland is one of the countries in which the drone market is growing at the fastest pace.
According to the Civil Aviation Authority, in mid-May 2016 in Poland, we had almost 2.5 thousand valid certificates of qualifications issued for operators of an unmanned aircraft, as drones should formally be called. But a certificate of qualifications is valid only for people who want to use drones for purposes other than sports and recreation, including primarily for commercial purposes. The others use drones without such documents. However, all pilots of such "aircraft" have the same responsibility for violation of the rules. And they boil down primarily to checking that the area in which we want to use the drone has not just been excluded from traffic, and to maintaining an appropriate distance from "animate and inanimate objects."
