The Federal Government has launched a new website – drones.gov.au – to provide Australians with clear information about drone rules and regulations.
The website has been developed to serve as a one-stop-shop for industry, recreational drone users and members of the public, and provides drone users with links to safety requirements as well as a drone noise self-assessment and approval tool.
Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government the Hon Catherine King MP said the new website would be a valuable resource for Australian drone users.
“The Australian Government recognises the importance of ensuring information on these regulatory requirements and process is clear and accessible to all members of the public, particularly those who own and operate drones or are thinking of doing so in the future,” Minister King said.
“Rapid and continuous advancements in aviation technology bring opportunities for growth and development, and the launch of this website is another step forward towards unlocking the breadth of benefits increased uptake of drones supports.
“This website is the place to go for answers and guidance on drone use, no matter the level of expertise, and I encourage those interested to take a look.”
