Approval granted to operate drone at Coverley

The public is asked to note that permission has been granted to operate a drone in Barbados’ airspace on Friday, January 25, from 10:00 a.m. to noon.

The Prime Minister’s Office has further advised that the purpose of the exercise is to capture aerial photo and video footage of the Villages at Coverley Development, Coverley, Christ Church.
