THE IDEAS BOOM

As a part of the Federal Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has released new legislation governing the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft that came into effect in September 2016. This new legislation aims to align innovation with regulation, enhance safety standards, and cut red tape and regulatory costs.

KEY CHANGES
A person will be permitted to conduct limited commercial operations on sub 2 kg Remotely Piloted Aircraft without the need for certification provided the Standard Operating Conditions are met.

Private landholders will be able to conduct a range of commercial type activities on remotely piloted aircraft of up to 25 kg over their own land where no money is paid for the flight.

Certified Operators will benefit from more freedom to operate and a more streamlined relationship with the regulator. Area approvals and exemptions will also be much easier to obtain.

STANDARD OPERATING CONDITIONS
Provisions under Part 101 will permit limited commercial operation of sub 2 kg remotely piloted aircraft without certification from CASA. Operators will be required to register with CASA prior to operation, and must adhere to the ‘Standard Operating Conditions’.

Whilst a yet to be released Manual of Standards will provide additional limitations, Standard Operating Conditions prohibit operations;
- in autonomous flight mode; or
- within 30 metres of people; or
- above 400 ft; or
- beyond visual line of sight; or
- at night; or
- within 3 nm of a controlled aerodrome; or
- over crowds and public gatherings

The onus to be aware of and to comply with the rules lies with the controller and strict penalties will apply.

AS IT STANDS
CASA has released an Explanatory Statement that outlines the changes and frequently provide guidance materials. If you would like more information on operating drones commercially in the sub 2 kg category.
