Budapest, April 21 (MTI) – Hungary’s National Transport Authority (NKH) has so far issued more than 100 licences for the commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles, business daily Világgazdaság said on Thursday.
The licences cost 19,000 forints (EUR 61) apiece, while a one-time permit for the use of air space is 3,000 forints.
Licensing is not required for drones used for personal purposes, the authority noted. The number of drones in Hungary is growing “exponentially”, it added.
The drafting of regulations on integrating drones into civil air space at the European Union level will start this year. The final rules could be in force by 2018, the paper said.
