Drone Safety Review a Welcome Start – Doesn’t Address Immediate Safety Issues
Posted by on 10 October 2016
The association of Australian Certified UAV Operators Inc. (ACUO) has welcomed today's announcement for a Drone Safety Review by the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Darren Chester MP.
The announcement is a timely acknowledgement by the government that the new drone regulations are less than adequate, however, ACUO warns that such a review does not address the immediate safety issues created with the latest regulatory amendments.
ACUO is urging the minister to support disallowance in the senate as evidence of the governments’ genuine commitment to safety.
