Solutions for Local Government
The rapid growth in drone technologies has presented local government with significant opportunities and challenges. With the regulation of airspace controlled by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and many misconceptions remaining on what can be flown by whom and where, the early tendancy for many local authorities was to limit the areas where remote aircraft could be flown, often in contradiction of the aviation regulations. More recently, enlightened local authorities have adopted the CASA regulations and now defer to CASA for regulatory guidance.
The opportunities for local government and civil authorities are significant, the benefits for public order, planning and build permits, monitoring illegal dumping, environmental management (including canopy coverage and inspection), weed management, promotion of local events, capital works inspection, infrastructure inspection, policing and security are obvious.
Our expert team can help local authorities to develop their own drone capabilities and to develop best practice procedures for the safe execution of Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) missions aligned to current work flows and policies.
