Know the rules - fly safe

FOLLOW THE RULES EVERY TIME YOU FLY

Remotely piloted aircraft used for sport or recreational purposes that weigh 150kg or less are considered to be operating privately and are regulated by the provisions for model aircraft.

You must not fly your drone in a way that creates a hazard to another aircraft, person or property, so follow the rules every time you fly.

These rules do not apply to all drone flyers. If you hold a remote pilot licence (RePL) and operate according to a remotely piloted aircraft operator certificate (ReOC) or have an authorisation from CASA, you will be exempt.

KEY POINTS

  • Visual line of sight
  • What you need to know
  • Research the area you plan to fly
  • Can I fly there
