Once you have authorisation
You need to comply with Civil Aviation Rules be familiar with
Rule Part 101. Once you have authorisation from the Airport
Operator (and/or in the case of an ‘air traffic controlled airport’,
Airways Corporation of NZ), these are some key rules you will need
to comply with (in addition to any conditions attached to your
authorisation/agreement):
The operator must have an approved pilot qualification or be
under the supervision instruction of an approved person (or
hold a Part 61 or Part 149 pilot licence)
The RPA must not be flown over any part of the aerodrome
unless specifically approved in the authorisation
In addition to the airport authorisation, you must have
consent of the occupier or property owner of land over which
the RPA is to be flown (this includes roads and local Council
reserves and parks)
Must not fly the RPA higher than 400 feet above ground level
without CAA approval
Each pilot must have an observer in attendance while the RPA
is in flight
The operator must not drop any object from the RPA if it
creates a hazard to any person or property
Must have unobstructed view of surrounding airspace, and
meteorological conditions that enable visual line of sight of
the RPA to be maintained
Must not operate at night unless indoors or alternatively is
within 100m of, and below the top of, a natural or man-made
object
Must not operate in a designated low flying area or
designated restricted area or military operating area unless
approved by the authority responsible for that airspace.
To apply for an authorisation
For flying within the control zone of an ‘air traffic controlled
airport’ apply for authorisation from Airways Corporation of NZ
through www.airshare.co.nz. Note that most regional airports
are not ‘controlled’ for 24 hours. Depending on the time of day
you may need Airport Operator authorisation as well.
For flying within 4km of an ‘uncontrolled’ airport, contact the
airport operator concerned. Use the attached application form to
provide the necessary detail.
