The use of drones is strictly regulated by Australian aviation authorities. Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) provides the following information regarding the operation of drones in and around airports.
Our recreational drone safety rules are designed to protect other people in the air and on the ground. You must not fly your drone in a way that creates a hazard to another aircraft, person or property, so follow our 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.
