Take a deep dive in this webinar into the Australian Drone Regulations and what is required to operate RPAS systems in Australia with a comprehensive look at the regulatory framework including classes of operation and ultimately what is required to operate BVLOS along with the standard scenarios that have recently been developed to make the process easier to be achieved. Australian Drone Regulations are in many ways progressive and as such are enticing companies to Australia for testing or implementing world-first RPAS operations with the mindset that if they can have their operations approved in Australia they can have them approved anywhere in the world. This coupled with features such as vast unpopulated geographic areas allows for testing that may not be able to be achieved in other more densely populated nations.
Another exciting recent release is the Civil Aviation Safety Authorities (CASAs) strategic regulatory roadmap. The Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Strategic Regulatory Roadmap outlines the CASA’s approach to RPAS and AAM regulations over the next 10 to 15 years. It sets out the long-term plan for safely integrating these technologies into Australia’s airspace and future regulatory system, alongside traditional aviation. The evolution of the roadmap will continue to keep pace with new technologies and innovations to support the future of this rapidly growing industry. The release of this strategic regulatory roadmap shows that governments in Australia across all levels firmly have their eyes fixed on new and evolving aviation technologies now and more importantly long-term.
