Drones in Australia

Public·203 membres

Currently in NZ where I thought drone rules might be a little more accomodating. At least it is possible to apply for a permit but DoC ranger told me Id have to apply for a permit and that would take "at least 5 days and you wont get one anyway"

. Told me it best to leave your drone at home if you're visiting. It also appears that privacy rules are also quite inhibiting so you MUST get permission before flying over private land. The weather was crap for the first few days so not suitable for droning and any opportunities passed as we moved on each day. Meanwhile, helicopters and light aircraft fly around like blowflies, low and noisy, in the glacier and fjiord regions.

Thanks for sharing this experience and picture @Phil Lodge Quite timely actually as another member has just shared with us their experience in Queenstown which we're about to publish on Wednesday. Could we use your photo to illustrate the risks of flying your drone down there, and where exactly was it taken? Cheers.
