Noise Regulation Review for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) and Specialised Aircraft

The department is conducting a review to determine the appropriate scope and breadth of future noise regulation in relation to RPAs, such as drone operations and urban air mobility aircraft and Specialised Aircraft, such as supersonic aircraft and historic aircraft.

The review will consider the community noise impacts of each type of operation and determine considerations for potential noise regulations. As well as examining opportunities for State and Territory regulations to provide for coverage of noise impacts from these types of aircraft operating in urban environments.

The review will also look at developments overseas and industry innovation to reduce noise impacts through better aircraft design and operations.

Submissions on the RPA issues paper and Specialised Aircraft issues paper have now closed.
