Information about drone operations in New Zealand

New Zealand's diverse landscapes, from the volcanic North Island to the glacial valleys of the South Island, provide a vast canvas for drone applications. GLOBHE is committed to leveraging this potential, offering drone data collection services that meticulously comply with New Zealand's aviation regulations and cater to the country's varied environmental and infrastructural needs.

Comprehensive Drone Regulations in New Zealand

In New Zealand, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulates drone operations, ensuring that they are safe, secure, and respect the privacy of individuals. Regulations cover various aspects, including:

  • Part 101 and Part 102 of the Civil Aviation Rules: Part 101 governs lower-risk operations, allowing for certain activities without the need for certification, as long as operators adhere to standard operating procedures. For more complex operations, Part 102 requires operators to obtain a certificate from the CAA, demonstrating thorough safety planning and risk mitigation strategies.
  • Restricted Airspace: Special attention is required for operations in controlled airspace, near aerodromes, or in areas where low-flying aircraft operate, such as those used for agricultural purposes or scenic flights.
  • Privacy Considerations: Operators must respect New Zealand's privacy laws, avoiding unauthorized capture of individuals without consent, particularly in residential and public areas.

GLOBHE’s operations in New Zealand align with these regulations, ensuring all drone flights maintain the highest standards of safety and privacy.

  • Tourism and Film Production: Capturing the stunning scenery that makes New Zealand a top destination for tourists and filmmakers, ensuring adherence to regulations that protect the country's natural beauty.

Detailed Regional Regulatory Considerations in New Zealand

Given New Zealand’s varied regions, drone operations are tailored to meet local conditions:

  • Auckland Region: As the largest urban area, drone use requires careful planning to avoid disruptions and comply with local council bylaws in addition to national regulations.
  • Canterbury Region: In areas such as Christchurch, drones contribute to urban redevelopment while operating under specific guidelines post-earthquake reconstruction efforts.
  • Otago and Southland: Drones in these southern regions support agricultural communities and conservation efforts, with a need for awareness of the colder climate conditions that can affect flight operations.
  • Wellington: The capital city's airspace is closely monitored, requiring clearances for drone flights, particularly given the proximity to government buildings and cultural landmarks.
