Local governments located within 5.5 km of a controlled airport or in an approach and departure path may be eligible for free drone safety signage.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has pre-cut aluminium drone safety signage available to order.
Drone safety signage aims to help drone flyers know where they can and can’t fly for the safety of people, property and other aircraft operating in the area.
There are two types of signs available:
- The Caution: drone rules apply is a warning sign. You can display this sign in public areas such as national parks, playgrounds or other populous areas.
- The No drone zone sign is a prohibition sign. It’s designed to tell people they must not fly their drone in the location it’s signposted without CASA approval.
Visit CASA’s website to learn more and find out if your local community is eligible for the free signage.
