Civil Aviation Authority - Launch of New Drone Rules
The Civil Aviation Authority has launched new rules regarding the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. The conditions will mean stricter control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles at New Zealand’s aerodromes from 1 August 2015.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can not operate:
- Within 4 km of any aerodrome unless specific conditions are met
- In airspace designated special use, or with any airspace restrictions
- In a way that causes a hazard for people or property
- Over runways or any other ‘active’ part of the aerodrome including other aircraft
- Outside of daylight hours (after sunset and before sunrise) except if indoors or within 100 m of and below the top of a natural or man-made object
- Above any area where the ground visibility is less than 3 km or if the cloud base is low and can not be operated in line of sight of the operator
