Remotely piloted aircraft registration and accreditation - further assistance for industry
On 24 March 2020, CASA announced a suite of measures to alleviate pressure on Australian RPA operators while ensuring the ongoing safety of aviation.
COVID-19 is expected to continue to disrupt business and operations for some time, so we are putting in place further measures to assist the RPAS industry.
Drone registration for commercial operators and excluded category operators was scheduled to commence on 1 April 2020 in line with legislation that was passed in July 2019.
The government has agreed to defer mandatory drone registration and accreditation until 30 September 2020.
Recreational drone registration and accreditation is still expected to commence in 2022.
