The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulates the flying of all drones in Australia.*
Under their Regulations, the City of Belmont (excluding a small portion of Balbuk Reserve) is in the No Fly Zone which extends around Perth Airport.
Any breaches of these regulations are enforceable by CASA. Unsafe drone operations should be reported directly to CASA – report unsafe drone operations

Other regulations drones must abide by:
All RPA (drones) or similar devices must be operated:
• During the day
• Within visual line of sight (this means being able to see the aircraft with your own eyes rather than through a device) at all times
• You must keep your drone at least 30 metres away from other people
• You must not fly your drone higher than 120 metres above the ground
• You must not fly over or above people. This could include beaches, parks, events, or sport ovals where there is a game in progress.
• You must only fly one RPA at a time.
*The flying of drones and other remotely piloted aircraft in Australia is regulated by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) through the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations Part 101.
