CanberraUAV prides itself in being a responsible civilian not-for-profit organisation; a key part of this is conducting our flying activities in a safe manner. We understand the responsibility that we have as members of the aviation community; in the spirit of that community it is important that we talk about the safety aspects of our hobby.

CanberraUAV will start producing a bit more content on YouTube so that those of you who can’t get to the field on weekends, can get a feel for what we are up to. Here is a link to the first, in what will be a semi-regular series of updates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAWBX3rgEZc While we’re good at writing… Read More »
