Area Approvals & Applications

Area Approvals

Need to fly a drone somewhere tricky? We can help!

FPV Australia has been assisting ReOC holders with gaining approvals to fly in Restricted Airspace and closer than 3NM to controlled airports for nearly a decade.

What is Involved?

When it comes to obtaining approvals from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) for drone operations within specific areas, such as restricted airspace or controlled zones, FPV Australia can play a crucial role in facilitating the process.

FPV Australia can provide comprehensive knowledge of CASA regulations pertaining to airspace restrictions and controlled zones. This includes understanding the different classes of airspace, restricted areas, and the procedures for obtaining approvals to operate within them.

We even guarantee it.

What do you get?

FPV Australia can conduct thorough risk assessments for the proposed drone operations within the designated area. This involves identifying potential hazards, assessing associated risks, and developing mitigation strategies to ensure safe operation.

We can assist in developing detailed operational plans tailored to the specific requirements of the designated area. This includes defining flight paths, altitude restrictions, communication protocols, emergency procedures, and contingency plans.

FPV Australia can help prepare and organize all necessary documentation required for CASA area approvals. This includes completing application forms, providing safety assessments, operational procedures, and any other relevant information requested.
