According to the daily Morgunblaðið, the main changes are aimed at increasing safety and an overview of drone operations, both while playing and working.
There will be no special requirements for using drones that weigh less than 250 grams and are referred to as toys. Users of drones weighing 250 grams or more and equipped with a camera must complete courses and skills tests on the Icelandic Transport Authority website to be able to steer them.
The issued certificates will determine in which category they can fly. The requirements for drone pilots will therefore increase as the drone becomes heavier and regardless of whether it is used in urban or rural areas.
