What you need to know

Drones represent an enormous opportunity to improve productivity and efficiency across different parts of New Zealand’s economy. The benefits of drones also come with challenges that require innovative solutions to new and existing regulation.

The drone forums are a way for us to share what we are doing, where we are going and encourage the sector to get involved. Anyone interested in the use of drones in New Zealand can attend.

We hosted the first forum in June 2019 and further forums in November 2019 and August 2020.
