Acting director of aviation safety Graeme Crawford and remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) branch manager Luke Gumley have announced several new initiatives that Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA )will deliver to help ensure the safe integration of RPAS into Australian skies.

The announcements took place at the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems’ annual conference in Canberra and included:

“Moving to digital approval processes is a key initiative for CASA, streamlining interactions and making it easier for operators,”  Graeme Crawford said.

The trial digital process will be delivered through CASA’s remotely piloted aircraft systems digital platform, with Airservices and the Queensland University of Technology to develop designated maps that will be used to conduct the relevant analysis required for these automated authorisations.

The trial will start at the end of next month and will take place at three aerodromes across Australia.
