CASA has been issuing fines to more and more remote pilots for conducting operations that are not inline with the regulations. In the latest CASA Briefing Newsletter - March 2018, CASA has stated that they have issued more than $6,210 in fines, with one operator being fined a total of $2,100. The maximum value that CASA can fine you for an infringement is more than $9,000 so all of these operators got off lightly.
The extract below is from the newsletter:
How well do you know the regulations? how would you conduct these sorts of operations safely, compliant with the regulations?
