Rules for Flying Drones

Australians love their drones. In fact, there are more drones being flown above backyards, parks, and beaches than ever before.
More drones in the sky means it’s important that we all understand the rules that keep you and others around you safe, on the ground and in the air.
Here are the rules that you need to know before take-off.

Important Facts for Drones

Here are some of the rules for recreational drone operators that are missed by most drone pilots.
Drone flight height

You must not fly your drone higher than 120 metres (400 feet) above ground level.

30 metres from people

You must keep your drone at least 30 metres away from other people.

One drone at a time

You must only fly one drone at a time.

Visual line of sight

You must keep your drone within visual line-of-sight. This means always being able to see the drone with your own eyes (rather than through a device, screen or goggles).

No fly over people

You must not fly over or above people or in a populous area. This could include beaches, parks, events, or sport ovals where there is a game in progress.

Respect privacy

Respect personal privacy. Don’t record or photograph people without their consent — this may breach other laws.

5.5km from controlled air space

If your drone weighs more than 250 grams, you must fly at least 5.5 kilometres away from a controlled airport, which generally have a control tower at them.

Cannot create a hazard

Remember, you must not operate your drone in a way that creates a hazard to another aircraft, person or property.

Fly in the day time

You must only fly during the day and you must not fly through cloud or fog.

Stay away from emergencies

You must not fly your drone over or near an area affecting public safety or where emergency operations are underway. This could include situations such as a car crash, police operations, a fire or firefighting efforts or search and rescue.

5.5km from helicopter landing sites

If you're near a helicopter landing site or smaller aerodrome without a control tower, you can fly your drone within 5.5 kilometres. If you become aware of manned aircraft nearby, you will have to manoeuvre away and land your drone as quickly and safely as possible.

Commercial rules apply

If you intend to fly your drone for or at work (commercially), there are extra rules you must follow. You will need a remote pilot licence (RePL) or fly in the excluded category (sub-2 kilogram or private landholder).
