Be DroneSmart

Big or small, if it is man made and it flies, itís an aircraft and there are rules about flying it.

You need to be aware of the place you are flying and whether the airspace is controlled by the manned aviation authorities.

You need permission to fly over people or property.

You need to keep your aircraft in sight at all times.

Donít cause a nuisance or endanger property, 50 metres away is a good guide.

Fly safe, know the rules.


CAA Rules

New rules are now in place for RPAS, UAV, UAS, Drones and Model Aircraft
. These laws came into effect on Saturday 01 August 2015.

Please visit to get up to date on the latest changes and how they effect your current activities.

Remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) must use the right radio frequencies, so they donít cause harmful interference to vital radio systems such as air traffic control, cellular phones, or emergency services.
People who use the wrong frequencies for their RPAS can be prosecuted under the Radiocommunications Act 1989 and the Radiocommunications Regulations 2001.

Check out for all the frequencies allowed for remotely piloted aircraft systems
