During AECO’s Annual Meeting 2016 an amendment to further strengthen AECO guidelines regarding Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) was approved:

“AECO has banned a general use of UAV by revenue passengers in the Arctic. Use of UAV’s for special purposes may be decided by the operators within limits of regulations and AECO guidelines. UAVs should not be used to pursue or follow wildlife.”
