Wondering where you can and cannot fly your drone in New Zealand?
Check out the maps below to find out.
UAVs are not permitted to fly in any Low Flying Zones, which are coloured orange.
Permission from the administering authority is requested to fly in the green zones.
The blue circle areas indicate a 4km radius around aerodromes.
These areas require you to gain approval before you fly from the administrating authority or landowner.
Control Zones are managed by Air Traffic Control and extend down to ground level.
These areas are where you are unlikely to receive approval to fly from the administrating authority or landowner.
- These maps are intended to depict published aerodromes, aerodrome control zones, Low Flying Zones, Military Operating Areas and Restricted Areas only. Upper level controlled airspace is not depicted which is above 400 feet outside a control zone. There are other types of special use airspace areas such as Danger Areas, which are permanent and also temporary notified via Notices to Airmen (NOTAM). Refer to the AIP for more information under the Permanent and Temporary Airspace links.
- You can purchase Visual Navigation Charts which depict other types of airspace here.
