    Nice overview. I’ve heard that excluded flyers have to agree to AC101-10…which is interesting considering the misalignment. Also as I understand it the app doesn’t highlight PRD areas when active like ozrunways. Wish it did!

    This app will not display any information if there is no phone or internet service available.
    Do you know of a similar app that works offline?

    Howdy? I am visiting BNE next week for my vacation time. I will spend 7 days on traveling there, and the highlight is that i will bring over my drone with me along this trip. I have been reading and tried to understand CASA rules and regulations. To be honesy, the article showing in the website for me is a bit difficult to understand. So this is my personal summary that
    – a red color is not allowed to fly within 5.5 km. radius…
    – an orange/ yellow is allowed to fly, but need to be careful?
    – no color restriction is free to fly?

    Please advice for this. Thank you very much.

    What happens if I fly to no fly zone by accident from fly zone. Will I loose my drone??

    Common sense needs to prevail no matter what though. Like watching wind effects etc They have essentially painted the whole country as a no fly zone. The accept or forget requirement is classic legal ploy to record your details and also lock you out of any defense if something goes wrong but they have disclaimers everywhere.

    wouldnt it be nice if they included proper ERSA links and NOTAMS .. i mean this wouldnt be hard to do .. apps like RWY already seem to manage it .. but casa just didnt seem to be able to .. like offering PROPER information .. not watered down for "Drone" operators because i think its probably pretty important for drone operators to know the rules too .. with regard to reading ERSA’s VTC/VNC and NOTAMS.. even if they arent REPL’s
