La Nacion.com reports that “… flights within five miles of airports and airfields, unless they have express permission from the Directorate of Civil Aviation are prohibited… Nor can they operate at over 120 meters high (this prevents use of areas where planes fly) and they are only authorized for use in the daytime. ”

“… For reasons of security and privacy, neither can they be flown over urban agglomerations of buildings, neighborhoods or houses, or within 30 meters of a person, property or vehicle. The proposal will include penalties under the General Law of Civil Aviation for those who violate the rules. ”
