Drone regulation in Australia is governed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia, CASA. Below is a summary of useful information for Parrot drone users. More details are available on the CASA website.
It is legal to fly your Parrot drone in Australia, but as is often the case, limitations apply to ensure the safety of people and equipment. Here are the main points.
- You must only fly during the day and always keep your drone within visual line-of-sight.
- You must not fly your drone higher than 120 meters above the ground.
- You must not fly over or above people, and you should keep your drone at least 30 meters away from other people.
- If your drone weighs more than 250g (ANAFI, ANAFI THERMAL, ANAFI USA, ANAFI Ai) you must keep at least 5.5km away from controlled aerodromes.
- You must only fly one drone at a time.
- Respect personal privacy. Do not record or photograph people without their consent.
