The rapid increase in drone operations in the vicinity of airports is a concern for airport and aircraft operators across the country. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has recently introduced new rules to better protect people and aircraft from drone operations. The new rules focus on the operation of recreational drones and restrict their use in the vicinity of airports, places of assembly, near people and emergency operations.

Additionally, commercial drone operators should be aware of restricted and no-fly areas around Bendigo. The City of Greater Bendigo encourages drone operators to familiarise themselves with the new safety rules which are available at CASA’s new drone website: www.droneflyer.com.au/

CASA also has an app, 'Can I Fly There', which is available to download for free.
