Can I fly there? - Drone safety app
Not sure about where you can fly your drone?
We’ve teamed up with Drone Complier to produce an easy-to-use smartphone app illustrating where you’re not allowed to fly.
These areas include within 5.5km of controlled aerodromes, in approach and departure paths of non-controlled aerodromes and helicopter landing sites, as well as in restricted or military airspace. The app also highlights ‘caution’ areas around unregistered aerodromes where aircraft could be flying.
The ‘Can I fly there?’ drone safety app reflects the standard operating conditions for those flying their drone commercially (under the excluded category of commercial operations) and is a valuable educational and situational awareness tool for both commercial and recreational drone flyers.
The app is available on Android and iOS devices, with a web-based HTML5 version also accessible.
The data used by the ‘Can I fly there?’ app is sourced from Airservices Australia. If you would like to report inaccuracies in this data, such as the incorrect location of an aerodrome or helicopter landing site, please email docs.amend@AirservicesAustralia.com
If you would like to provide feedback on the app, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are potential privacy issues in operating drones. However, CASA's role is restricted to aviation safety—privacy is not in our remit.
The principal area of the Australian Government concerned with privacy is the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. Some State and Territory anti-stalking laws may apply to the operation of surveillance drones in some circumstances.
