How to buy a drone in Australia
Australia is a global leader in the field of drone technology, with some of the world’s most advanced drone systems already in operation.
But the country is also the home of one of the biggest regulatory hurdles for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, and there’s little appetite in the international community to allow the use in the country.
“I think we’re a little bit behind the curve,” says the former Australian foreign minister, Bob Carr.
“It’s very much a work in progress.”
Carr was speaking in Brisbane this week to explain why the use or export of drones should be regulated in Australia.
“Australia has a long history of a very different approach to drone technology from the US,” he said.
A key hurdle for Australia’s drone industry The Australian Government has introduced legislation to allow use of drones for research and development purposes. “
That’s not the case in the United States, and that’s a key reason why we have to be looking at drone law in Australia.”

This has come after the US and Canada both enacted similar laws.
The legislation will also allow the Australian Government to acquire and use drones for the purpose of research.
However, Carr says Australia is “not ready for the day that we’ll be able to do this.”
He says the government is “committed to trying to develop our own drones” but said there are “huge uncertainties” in the market.
“We have the technology and we know what we’re doing, but we’re still in the dark about what the market looks like for that technology,” he says.
“The government is doing a lot of things to try and get this right.
But we need a regulatory framework that’s based on the best science, that is sensible and that doesn’t create a lot more uncertainty.”
The Federal Government says it has “an extensive, well-regulated system of regulations for commercial drones” and that it is “very clear” that drones are not a commercial commodity.
“What we do know is that the market is not ready for commercial use of these technologies,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
“But we also know that they’re highly effective at delivering humanitarian aid and disaster relief, helping to reduce poverty and inequality and supporting economic development in remote areas.”
But Carr says this does not mean the Australian Drone Association has abandoned drone technology.
“They’re still trying to make that happen, because we’re the only country that has a fully functioning, regulated system of drones,” he explains.
“So we are a good place to start.”
Australia has the world leading drone industry, with an estimated 2.2 million drones in operation across its airspace, according to industry figures.
But Carr is concerned the technology is not being properly monitored.
“In the US, where you can go and fly drones for a living, they’ve got a very good, rigorous oversight system, where they have people who have to report any suspicious activity to the government,” he explained.
In addition to being a major exporter of drones, Australia also has a significant number of small and medium-sized companies that make and sell drones. “
But Australia doesn’t have that kind of oversight.”

But while the government’s new drone regulations may be a step in the right direction, Carr believes the current regulations are still not strong enough.
“For all the technical advances that we’re making, and I know the government has been really good at that, they don’t have a strong regulatory framework,” he argued.
The Federal Government has said it will allow Australian businesses to use drones in the future.”
And we have the ability to do that, but there’s a lot that needs to be done in terms of the oversight system.”
