RPAS automated airspace authorisation trial survey

Closes 28 Jan 2022

Opened 10 Dec 2021


Since May 2021, CASA and Airservices Australia have been conducting an automated airspace authorisation trial in Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.

The trial allows operators who hold a remotely piloted aircraft operator’s certificate (ReOC), or those who operate under one with a remote pilot licence (RePL), to quickly and easily apply to fly within 5.5 km (3NM) of a controlled airport.


This survey is asking for feedback from anyone who has already taken part in the trial or would like to take part should the opportunity arise.
