    Drones and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems : Christchurch City Council

    After an incident in Christchurch New Zealand where a pilot reported a drone sighting at 2km high , which turns out was probably fabricated, Local council introduced these laws

    Imagine having to submit a flight plan 3 days before detailing start stop altitude path etc

    Not good, don't plan a holiday with your drone here

    FYI Most other areas of Nz are fine with 400ft limit

    I hear you all have it pretty rough down there. There are a few New Zealanders here who have mentioned it.

    Pretty soon we're going to need insurance for our drones in USA.

    We can sue anyone for anything!

    I would overwhelm your councilman with daily reports to ensure your plan is ready for execution (fly when you wish) ;-)
