Recreational Drones

So you enjoy flying drones!

Recreational drones (eg: DJI Phantom, Mavic, Spark ) are an exciting technology being embraced worldwide and when operated(flown) in a recreational activity are defined as being model aircraft. Whether your racing drones,operating within a family and friends environment, during school vacation, taking photo's etc (who would of thought you'd become a 'hobbyist photographer'), there's a drone (model aircraft) for all  occasions! 


Recreational drones come in all shapes and sizes  and most importantly are regulated, that is, by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority who are the over arching regulator. There are regulations which apply to the operation of drones whether for recreational or commercial purposes. Before you begin to enjoy your drone do make yourself aware of the regulations which can be found here: Civil Aviation Drone Information. And, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has created an information internet page found here.
Would you like to see results regarding  input into drone regulation? The background and results can be found here : participation in the CASA survey.
