Drones in National Parks

21–26 of 26

  • This came up in a facebook discussion I was having 3 months ago on drones. Is it not part 101 of the Civil Aviation Rules that's relevant here? https://www.caa.govt.nz/assets/legacy/Advisory_Circulars/AC101-1.pdf#page=11 I don't have time to re-read it in detail right this moment, but from memory as well as dealing with land-owners being required to give consent, page 13 has a particular section on public land and spaces. It states that local authorites and DOC should be engaging with operators and providing necessary consent over the land they're responsible for.
  • Thanks for the link @izogi. For those in a hurry caa have a summary here: https://www.caa.govt.nz/rpas/ And a faq here which includes an answer to the very question being asked: https://www.caa.govt.nz/rpas/rpas-faqs/

  • If anyone thinks this situation will improve before it gets way worse; if anyone thinks the increasing numbers of people in the bush, especially international visitors, are going to adhere to their 'better angels' and not be increasingly clueless, inconsiderate, and obnoxious; if anyone thinks technology such as this will not compromise the wilderness experience for everyone: you're dreaming.
  • I will continue to carry my slingshot. Silent, reasonable range, discreet, all natural ammunition, doesn't pollute, albeit a downed drone might.
  • its pretty selfish and ignorant to use one around other people in a conservation park... they are highly irritating to be around when you're in a park... the noise, the intrusion to nature

  • Key: Filename of box.
  • On Request? "On request" boxes are not always used in a view.
  • Generated? "On request" boxes are only generated as needed; others are always generated (unless retrieved from the cache).
  • Title: Box title. Set in view definition but may be overridden.
  • File: The file that is used to generate the box content. This value is determined on application start by a file scan. If blank, the content is usually generated by the controller -- or the file is missing.
  • Template: which box template file to use (useful for major changes). Looks for /custom/template/box/[template].cfm first and /whio/template/box/[template].cfm second.
  • Class: what CSS class to apply to the box (useful for aesthetic tweaks).
  • Cache (min): cached item must be fresher than this.
  • Cache key: how the cache record is identified. {Placeholders} may be used.
  • From cache? Was the content of this box drawn from the cache?
