Excluded Category Drone Operations

When operating a remote aircraft in a commercial capacity that is less than 2kg, or less than 25kg as a private landholder, there is the option to operate in the Excluded Category. This allows individuals to fly remote aircraft that fit these limitations, with no formal licence requirements, within standard operating conditions.

When operated commercially, drones must be registered and an RPA operator accreditation must be obtained from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority

To operate in all areas professionally, using best practice, a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) is always recommended. However, the excluded category offers the perfect opportunity for businesses wishing to adopt and trial Remotely Piloted aircraft systems in a low-risk setting.

Due to the absence of licensing requirements, heavy restrictions apply in regards to where you can operate the aircraft. Public liability insurance is an important consideration particularly when an individual has been deemed the operator.
