There is still a height restriction and given that the media likes to fly out to film the boats, CASA will not be happy is anyone breaks those rules. Also there is a huge no fly zone off Nowra.Not sure what current Casa rules one breaks offshore unless flying over or near a competitor’s boat.
But it’d be really really crappo to get it tangled up with a chopper or plane or a military fighter doing a low pass at Mach 3 which they often do around here. Not much warning with those things
Mind you, even flying from one’s own boat (unless solo) you’d probably be breaking “flying close to people” rules.
Gawd knows they’re hard to launch and retrieve from boats at sea and if you’re crew member gets whacked on the head with one they’d know about it (or maybe not).
Bloody amazing tech. What about the footage from them in the last Volvo!
All sorts of uses. Possibly useful for MOB safety.
