Hi!
I will go to New Zealand this month and I'm plannig to do some shootings from the beach.
I used Airshare to plan my flight but I'm unsure of some rules I must respect.
I know that I can't fly over town, but if I want to record a video from the beach in front of the town? Obviously making sure I don't fly over buildings or people... Does anyone know if it is possible?

Note also this airspace map - https://app.airshare.co.nz/app/apps/airspaceMap/ - which shows controlled airspace within NZ.

Another thing to note is that you can't fly over NZ Department of Conservation land (e.g., national parks) without permission. Some beaches will fall into this category. In particular, you should avoid beaches that are likely to have protected wildlife - e.g., penguins, seals, sea lions

I'd have liked to take some pictures from the lake of this church but I found that it is in an aerodrome area so I can't. What's a pity.

Thanks anyway!
