  • If you are operating under an OSC please State Reduced Distances Here.

  • Reduced TOL Column

  • Reduced Separation Distance from PVVS

  • Reduced Separation Distance from Organised Open-air Assemblies of more than 1000 people.

  • Increased Maximum Height (250m lateral displacement from PIC)

  • When operated at a distance of greater than 250m lateral displacement from the PIC, the maximum height reduces to the standard 400’ AGL as per standard PfCO permissions.

  • Continue to next question

  • You must stay directly adjacent to the remote pilot and maintain direct unaided visual contact with the small unmanned aircraft at all times, to visually and aurally monitor the airspace for other aircraft and the area that the small unmanned aircraft will be operating in for any uninvolved persons, vehicles, vessels or structures.
