Beyond visual line of sight

Moderate BVLOS operations:

  • include tasks such as area or long line survey in rural or remote areas.
  • cannot include operations near or over people.
  • cannot include operations in or near controlled airspace or any other airspace volume where regular traffic would be reasonably anticipated, such as VFR routes.

For BVLOS approval, you would apply using form 101-09 and pay the CASA fees. 

RPA pilots do not require an IREX qualification under CASA's new exemption for BVLOS, providing the RPA pilot is supervised by an IREX qualified pilot.
