Can I use my new drone anywhere I want?

No. There are restrictions in relation to when, where and how you can use your new drone.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) website has regulations and rules that everyone flying drones recreationally must follow >> https://www.casa.gov.au/modelaircraft

CASA states that you must not fly your drone in a way that creates a hazard to another aircraft, person or property, so follow their rules every time you fly. The rules are:

  • You must not fly above 120 metres in all locations
  • You must not fly your drone in the area of a public safety or emergency operation, for example a bushfire, police, or search and rescue operation
  • You must not fly within 30 metres of other people, unless other the other person is essential to controlling or navigating the drone
  • You must operate only one drone at a time
  • If your drone weighs more than 100 grams:
    • you must not fly within 5.5 kilometres of a controlled aerodrome (usually those that have a control tower) at any time
    • you must not begin flying within 5.5 kilometres of a non-controlled aerodrome if there is a manned aircraft operating to, or from, the aerodrome
  • You must safely manoeuvre your drone away from the path of a manned aircraft and land as soon as safely possible if you become aware that a manned aircraft is operating to or from the non-controlled aerodrome or helicopter landing site
  • You must not fly at night or through cloud or fog
  • When flying you must be able to see your drone with your own eyes (not just on your app screen, first person view goggles or binoculars)
  • You must not fly over people
  • You must not fly in designated restricted areas.
