Hello;

Im from Brazil, and I will move to NZ Invercargill in Jan/18. Can I fly electric planes in Land or free fields, open space without putting people at risk?
I see some free places like fields, and I would Like to Fly there.

Is It Possible without brake rules in NZ?

Thanks
Rodrigo

Hi Rodrigo! This should be the place where you get the rules:

https://www.airshare.co.nz/rules

In a nutshell, they are:

1. not operate an aircraft that is 25 kg or larger and always ensure that it is safe to operate
2. at all times take all practicable steps to minimize hazards to persons, property and other aircraft (ie, don’t do anything hazardous)
3. fly only in daylight
4. give way to all crewed aircraft
5. be able to see the aircraft with your own eyes (eg, not through binoculars, a monitor, or smartphone) to ensure separation from other aircraft (or use an observer to do this in certain cases)
6. not fly your aircraft higher than 120 metres (400 feet) above ground level (unless certain conditions are met)
7. have knowledge of airspace restrictions that apply in the area you want to operate
8. not fly closer than four kilometres from any aerodrome (unless certain conditions are met)
9. when flying in controlled airspace, obtain an air traffic control clearance issued by Airways (via airshare My Flights)
10. not fly in special use airspace without the permission of the controlling authority of the area (e.g. military operating areas or restricted areas)
11. have consent from anyone you want to fly above
12. have the consent of the property owner or person in charge of the area you are wanting to fly above.

But I'd recommend you join a flying club, as they will likely have a dedicated flying field.

As above, but more simply

You cant fly over any free fields without the owners permission.
Some City Councils allow flying in local sports feilds, or local public parks , but Im not sure if Invervcargill allows this .

You cant overfly people (without permission)

There are rules regarding controlled airspace : with a certain distance of Airports, heliports , controlled airspaces etc

You cant FPV without an observer , watching out for low flying JumboJets

Because of all the restrictions , I joined a local RC Club & fly at their feild .

Some councils have had rules in place before the most recent 2015 "must have permission to fly in an area" rules.

Selwyn district, just out of Christchurch, has had the ruling since 2009 for flying in their parks -

Maximum weight 1 kg, must be electric, don't annoy people, stay within the park boundaries.
Any area where flying is not allowed must be very clearly indicated (presume big notices) of which there are none that I've ever seen.

Basically if you are happy to fly less than 1 kg, and electric it is OK in many places BUT you really need to check local council rules to be sure.

Hello All.

I will fly only electric airplanes, about 1,5K only. My planes are small, and I will buy In NZ the same models I have here.
