Low-flying chopper

30 Apr 2019

Yarra’s Edge residents didn’t have to be particularly alert to spot this low-flying chopper at 10am on April 14.

Ken Collier suspects the helicopter was shooting a video for a river charter boat.

The pilot may have had permission to do so, but the Civil Aviation and Safety Authority (CASA) says aircraft are generally not permitted to fly lower than 1000 feet over built-up areas.

Execeptions are made for: Taking off or landing; Instructions from an air traffic controller; and Aerial work e.g. power line inspection, geographical survey work, aerial firefighting, agricultural spraying.

CASA says: “To investigate a low flying incident, we need enough information to identify the aircraft. Photographs are helpful, and details of the aircraft’s registration number, type, make and model as well as the date and time of day.”

No problem with this detail in this case.
