Brisbane flight restrictions during G20 ?
Does anyone know the practical effects of the restricted airspace regs during the G20 in Brisbane ?
The official CASA notice is here, but I'm not a full-size pilot and a lot of the technical jargon doesn't mean much to me:
I've found a few other references which discuss it in more plain english:
- from a UAV org website: http://www.acuo.org.au/industry-info...-to-operators/
- from a recreational GA club website: http://bvsac.org.au/bvsac_news.pdf
One quote is "Note also that the Qld Government has enacted sweeping powers for police and enlisted services to curb any unauthorized activities or activities deemed to be a threat. This includes the use of Model Aircraft and just about all remote controlled equipment, including UAVs."
So, my reading of these is that pretty much flying anything within 90 nautical miles of Brisbane (eg even sloping with a 1kg foamie at Shorncliffe) is banned.
Is this really the case ???

page 6, section 3.5 clearly states that operations in the restricted zone are unlikely to be approved for model aircraft and UAS. So in short, contact CASA for advice, otherwise, it's pretty much zippo flying.
You'll have to look at a VTC chart, and reference the NOTAM information from the AIP information above to mark out the various areas and how the changes will apply for the times listed in the AIP.

I understand they are basically telling their members not to fly (the field will be closed) and not to even carry radio control equipment in your car near the affected areas during the times during the G20.

The gist of the restrictions are as follows:
1. Several (Aviation) Restricted areas will be promulgated in the Brisbane area for G20.
2. CASR 101 states that flying model aircraft in a Restricted Area is not allowed without the permission of the airspace arbiter (owner) in this case Airservices.
3. In the smaller areas (R900 ABC) that surround Brisbane Airport and Southbank (includes Tingalpa field) don't bother applying for permission.
4. In the larger areas (R900D) flying may be allowed with written permission but it may be too hard to organize.
5. The intent is for everything within 90 miles of Brisbane to be known air traffic by controlling access to the airspace. The ADIZ (Air Defence Identification Zone) is applicable to full size aircraft.
If you have any more specific questions about it let me know.
