Drones

So you enjoy flying drones!

Drones 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! 


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.
(Would you like to provide input into drone regulation? Then how about participating in the CASA survey?)

Need to operate in an FPV mode, no problems, the Society can help.(The Societies approved Civil Aviation Safety Authority Instrument can be found 'here'). And more information can be found in the documents section.
