Discussion on drones
Community members and organisations are being encouraged to have their say on the safety regulations of drones.
Infrastructure and Transport Minister Darren Chester said the federal government was keen to support growth and innovation of this fast moving industry whilst maintaining a high safety standard.
“Given the wide interest in drones I am encouraging as many people as possible to have their say on the development of future safety regulations for drones,” Mr Chester said.
“I am very pleased that nearly 1000 people and organisations have already submitted feedback.”
There are five key issues being examined: drone registration; training and education of drone operators; geo-fencing; counter drone technology; and future approaches to drone aviation safety regulation.
The discussion paper on drone safety regulation is open for comment until September 22.
