Civil Aviation Safety Authority - CASA
We’ve teamed up with specialist company, Drone Complier to develop a smartphone, tablet and web-based app to help drone flyers fly safely and responsibly.
The app, called ‘Can I fly there?’ is due to be launched in May this year.
It will allow those flying drones for fun, or under the new sub-2kg commercial category to enter a location where they are proposing to fly.
It will then flag nearby ‘no-drone zones’ such as airports, helicopter landing areas and other restricted areas.
It will also flag ‘no-drone zones’ areas where emergency services such as firefighters are operating.
