Drones

Flying rules around Glenorchy Airport

You cannot fly a drone (or film using a drone) within the Glenorchy Airstrip property or within a 4 kilometre radius of the Glenorchy Airport without authorisation from Airways Air Traffic Control.

QLDC isn’t giving approvals for remote controlled aircraft (including drones) to fly over our parks, reserves and roads at present, unless it is for a Commercial Film permit and the operator is certificated under Rule 102 of the Civil Aviation Act.
