Australian RPA noise regulations are here

Published by Josh Spires on 28 January, 2022, updated on 08 April, 2024.

Australian RPA noise regulations

Earlier this month the regulations around noise levels produced by drones were added to the Air Navigation (Aircraft Noise) Regulations 2018 (Cth). This is a significant step to regulating the noise produced by drones.

Under the new rules, any RPA over 250 grams operated outside of the Standard Operating Conditions needs approval from the Department of Infrastructure; this includes RPA operated at night, above 400ft AGL, outside of Visual Line of Sight, and operating within 3nm of a controlled airport.

The rules do not apply to the following operations:

  • Agricultural
  • Environmental
  • Emergency Services
  • Flying for Spot
  • Flying for Recreation
