Commercial Drone Registration Becomes Mandatory

Members are advised that there is less than a week before employers in the Building and Construction Industry risk fines for flying unregistered drones or remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) in Australia.

From 28 January 2021, any RPA flown for work or on behalf of an employer must be registered with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) – no matter how much it weighs.
