The Bunnings sausage sizzle drone was funny, but illegal. Much worse though are the fools who think they can fly their drone near a bushfire to get a great photo or video. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has today reissued their warning regarding drones in bushfire areas after a drone was spotted near operations in Sydney.
The recreational drone was spotted near water bombing operations at a fire in Western Sydney last Friday. CASA has been issuing warnings about drone use in bushfire areas since 2015, and their simple message is “if you fly – they can’t” referring to the aerial support for bushfire-fighters on the ground.
