BIG FINES FOR ANZAC DAWN SERVICE DRONE

Posted in ANZAC DAY, city of fremantle, flying, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on April 29, 2018

 

A professional pilot and drone expert told me yesterday that the operator of the drone at the Fremantle ANZAC Day dawn service at Monument Hill would get a big fine if CASA-Civil Aviation Safety Authority prosecutes the photographer.

The drone photography was commissioned by the City of Fremantle and considered a nuisance by many of the spectators as its buzzing sound interrupted the respectful silences at the dawn service.

According to my expert drones can’t fly before sunrise and after sunset, can’t fly within 50 metres of people, and the airspace above Monument Hill would have been restricted for the fly over of the airforce jets, so no other aircrafts were allowed anywhere near it.

The fine could be as high as $ 9,000 according to my expert.

There are a lot of people who have no idea about the rules and regulations of the use of drones. The tiny aircrafts are very popular because they are great tools for photography, aerial surveys, etc. so public education about how, where and when to use them is essential.

AERIAL SOLAR MARKETING FOR FREMANTLE

It might be a bit left field and out of the box, but if/when Fremantle gets its Solar Farm on the former South Fremantle tip site, could we ask the proponents to create the word FREMANTLE with the solar panels so that there is a bit of marketing for those who fly over our city.

In China there is a solar farm that looks like a panda from the air, so why not follow that lead?
