 (CASA Certified) Drone Safety

At Droneworxs we know how important it is to your business to make sure things are done “by the book”. To give you that piece of mind, each part of our business strives to reach the highest standards in certification and licensing:

We are licensed Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) Operator
Droneworxs Chief Pilot are certified by CASA as RPAS Controllers
Aircraft are certified airworthy by the Chief Maintenance Controller
The team is governed by a code of conduct

DO NOT HIRE UNLICENSED PILOTS!

As the growth of awareness in RPA filming and photography is realised, more suppliers will be offering their services. Anyone flying drones for commercial use is required to be licensed by the CASA  and if they are not they will not be insured or have public liability cover. Drone safety in our industry is paramount.

Licensing is a very real and important part of any RPA  flying. These machines can be very dangerous and a good understanding of how they work is key to keeping not only yourself safe but the surrounding public and property.

Insurance is also a big factor when you choose a RPA Operator. Being insured proves the company is legitimate and covers public liability up to $20 million.

CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) is our governing body. Like any commercial aircraft, you need a licence.

Licensing Rules are
Can only fly up to an altitude of 400 feet
Not in a built up populous area
Not within 30 meters to anyone not associated with the machine (Approval to 15 meters available to us)
Only fly within visual line of sight
Day time flight only
Not within 3 NM of a airport
Outside controlled airspace

Doneworxs Chief Pilot passed CASA’s final flying test with perfect scores across the board.

Please be careful to select an experienced licensed operator for the safety of those being filmed and the protection of the aerial filming industry! Thank you.

FAILSAFE EQUIPMENT

Our specialised Drones are fitted with fail safe return-to-home frequencies if the pilot is incapacitated or radio signal is lost with the Remotely Piloted Aircraft, though we are pleased to report that these functions have never been required!!!!
