Commercial and recreational UAS pilots
On the Skyward Airspace Map, prohibited, restricted, and danger areas in Australia are shown in red. RPAS flights are not allowed in or over these areas without specific permission from the controlling authority for that area.
Prohibited, restricted and danger areas are shown as a red area. Don’t fly within a prohibited area or an active restricted or danger area.
For expert aviators only
Some types of restricted airspace aren’t restricted at all times. Instead, they are activated on a fixed schedule or activated by a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM). Airservices Australia publishes the schedule for each restricted area. Use the name of the restricted area (e.g., YMMM/R246B WOOMERA) to find it in the the Designated Airspace Handbook. When you click on the area, its name is shown in the sidebar of the airspace map.
Before scheduling an operation within a restricted area:
- Click the area on the Skyward Airspace Map to get its name.
- Get the latitude and longitude of the flight area from the Skyward Airspace Map.
- Use the name of the restricted area (e.g., YMMM/R246B WOOMERA) to find it in the the Designated Airspace Handbook.
- The Hours of Activity will tell you if the restricted area is activated continuously, by schedule, or by a NOTAM.
- Check for a NOTAM(NAIPS account required).
Do not fly within a restricted area if you are unsure whether or not it is activated.
It may be possible to get permission to fly within a red area from the controlling authority or its parent agency. The name of the controlling authority can be found in the the Designated Airspace Handbook.
Do not fly within red airspace without permission.
