An annual registration charge in place for commercial drones could be extended to recreational drones next year.
The price is yet to be determined, but is believed to be around $40 – the current fee to register a commercial drone.
Civil Aviation Safety Authority spokesman Peter Gibson said gathering details of drone users will allow the agency to send out safety messages.
“It makes it much easier to have a one-on-one safety relationship with everyone who’s got a drone,” he said on 6PR Breakfast.
“There are people doing the wrong things, sometimes, by-and-large not, but obviously if you don’t follow the rules you put yourself at risk.”
