Today, the market for civil and commercial use of drones is actively developing, while the risks associated with their use are also increasing. At the same time, according to market research data from leading foreign companies, the rapidly developing market for civil and commercial use of drones has the greatest growth potential. Therefore, drone legislation is developing rapidly and is being improved every year. However, now it has come to a state of relative stability, allowing us to assert those general rules that will apply for a long time. The proper implementation of laws on the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, is proposed for the successful innovation and development of infrastructure and agriculture in the Republic of Azerbaijan. Through the clear enforcement of laws and guidelines of UAVs, involving registration, certification, and regular surveillance of UAVs by the National Aviation Academy, the implementation of drones will be systemized, paving the way for further innovative development of Azerbaijan (pp.30-37).
