  1. http://www.flightsafetyaustralia.com/2016/03/casa-to-cut-drone-red-tape/ Taking effect from 29 September 2016 commercial operators flying RPAs weighing less than two kilograms will not require an operator’s certificate or a remote pilot licence. I feel this is a bit of a kick in the guts. CASA have almost done a complete backflip on an over regulated industry to almost none at all. Soon the sky's of Australia will be filled with Phantom 4 and their pilots have not had any training or certification. During my training I learnt a lot about the aviation industry and how drones and manned aircraft interact. Basically these changes mean that drone operators with drones less than 2kg can fly without this knowledge. The other harsh reality is that an operator’s certificate costs somewhere between $5,000-$10,000 (AUD) and a remote pilot licence around $3,000 (AUD). So, those operators with Phantoms or other drones <2kg who just went through the 6 month process and forked out at least $10,000 are now told they didn't need to! I really think that all commercial drone operators should have to at least do some form of training i.e. remote pilot licence
