QLD/WA - All good - No Permit Required?QLD and WA you can fly to casa rules in Nat pks.
NT is relatively easy to apply online for free permit.
NSW (and maybe ACT) been told you can apply but think it’s a case of too hard basket.
SA, VIC, TAS might as well forget it, unless you are prepared to fly in remote regions outside the state parks rules.
I fly in remote SA outback, Simpson desert etc, we just aren’t near other people sometimes all day.
With respect to the airspace it would seem CASA is the ultimate authority with respect to the airspace. I wouldn’t be supremely confident in arguing that National Park’s and Local Govt authorities might not have the authority impose and enforce restrictions on whether landing and taking off might be prohibited in defined areas. Do you have any links to the NT litigation? Should make an interesting read.At the end of the day, CASA is the higher Authority and State/council legislation can’t over ride it. You stick to CASA regs and are fine. HOWEVER...... this doesn’t mean that the local authorities can’t fine you. It just means if you take them to task in a court of law, you will win. Going to be a pain in the *** though I would imagine and prob not worth it. This is being tested in the NT courts at the moment so I guess once precedents start being set, this will be clearer and local authorities will find they don’t have jurisdiction.
I attended a lecture earlier this year given by Aviation Lawyers who gave this information. AAUS will also advocate for any of their members willing to fight this.
Marlene, Belair NP is one metro park I’d be hesitant to fly in, usually busy but as you say it can be quiet sometimes.Cheers for info,, I had been practising at Belair national park, front oval, when no one was around. I haven't been approached by anyone yet. Dont want to upset the apple cart. May have to leave it and go down further south to open areas where there are no residents.
Google > [state] national park drone permit Most states info comes up fairly easy to find.QLD/WA - All good - No Permit Required?
NT - All Good - No Permit Required?
NSW/ACT - ya mean don't worry bout applying and just fly ??
SA - ya mean don't worry bout applying and just fly ??
@SIT I’m pretty sure CASA don’t have such a rule.CASA regulations state that you require land owner approval for a take off/landing site. The parks/councils probable have some fine that they can impose independently of the CASA airspace
You might be right.@SIT I’m pretty sure CASA don’t have such a rule.
If you know where it is located in their regulations, can you post a link ?
Councils have bylaws (that they seem to be able to make up to suit themselves) and can fine someone under a specific rule.
Most of the council bylaws relate to operating models including planes, drones, cars, boats (motor or sail), etc.
I have even seen such a bylaw at one Adelaide foreshore council banning kites with 2 strings !!
