Drones in the Town


In accordance with Regulation 16A of the Swan and Canning Rivers Management Regulations 2007, a permit is required to take-off or land within the Swan Canning Development Control Area (DCA) i.e. you do not need a permit to fly over the DCA, provided the take-off and landing location is outside of the DCA.

The boundaries of the DCA can be found here

Please note that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority guidelines and regulations apply at all times.

If you’re still unsure as to whether or not you will require a permit, please email us with marked points on a map showing take-off and landing.
