Japan International Drone Expo | 日本初「国際ドローン展」

Japan’s first “International Drone Expo” is being held outside of Tokyo from May 20 through the 22nd.  Some 50 companies are attending the exhibition where they are introducing their drone technology and related equipment.  Drones have been in the media lately in Japan with several incidents that are raising concern that clear laws need to be made for governing them.  Currently, under aviation laws people are basically free to fly below 250 meters, except near airports and now some parks and near Prime Minister’s office have been named off limits.  Clear laws that will regulate who, what, when, and where will help to energize the industry.
