Drone Operation Kangaroo Point
Wondering if you can fly your drone around Riverlife & the beautiful Kangaroo Point Cliffs? We’ve broken it down for you below!
We are Close to YXLC LADY CILENTO CHILDREN`S HOSPITAL aerodrome! If your drone weighs more than 100g, you must not launch within 5.5km of this aerodrome/helicopter landing site (HLS) if you are aware, or become aware, that manned aircraft are operating to or from this aerodrome/HLS.
If you are already flying your drone within 5.5km of an aerodrome/HLS and become aware that manned aircraft are operating to/from this aerodrome/HLS, you must manoeuvre safely away from the path of that aircraft and land as soon as it is safe to do so.
- Any commercial Drone operation completed at Riverlife Adventure Centre must be operated by a CASA licensed operator within the following guidelines.
- The Operator is required to submit a flight schedule, risk assessment, a copy of their drone licence and details of their Rig to Riverlife to be reviewed by prior to filming.
- As it is a high population area, drone operation may not take place overhead of populated areas. This includes overhead of Kayaking or tour groups.
- The top of the Kangaroo point cliffs is a No Fly area. This area is not under Riverlife’s control, and Penalties can apply.
- All flight paths should be checked on “Can I fly here” app before flying. You can access this information via the following website: https://casa.dronecomplier.com/external
- The operator or Spotter must maintain a visual line of sight at all time.
- Drone operation is not permitted as a solo operation at Riverlife. All drone operators must have a spotter at all times.
Launching drones from other Council parkland
You can launch and land drones and other remotely piloted aircraft from any Council parkland, without Council consent if:
- you are flying for recreational purposes; and
- your aircraft is a children’s toy, or weighs less than 0.5 kilograms*; and
- you are flying no earlier than 7am Monday to Saturday, or no earlier than 8am on Sundays and public holidays; and
- your activities do not endanger, interfere with or cause nuisance to the park, park users or adjoining properties; and
- you follow CASA’s safety rules for flying drones and other remotely piloted aircraft recreationally at all times; and
- the park area is available for public use and not part of a site managed by another organisation, such as a sporting club or community group. *CASA rules override this in some locations, for example, within 5.5 kilometres of an aerodrome or helicopter landing site. Check the CASA droneflyer website or their ‘Can I fly there?’ drone safety app for details.
