Play it safe around the airport folks! A recent incident with a kite entering airspace used by emergency services has highlighted the need for the community to be mindful around Taupō Airport. A kite being flown at height in the Wharewaka East area recently caused considerable disruption to the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter.
It's important that the community bear in mind the airspace restrictions in place around the airport. Aircraft can operate at low level on the approach paths to and from Taupō Airport from all directions, this includes flying over urban areas located near the airport.
Drones or kites have the potential to conflict with aircraft and safety is the key focus for both aircraft operators and the community. Taupō operates in what is called Mandatory Broadcast Zone airspace, with aircraft able to operate 24/7, specifically in the case of the rescue helicopter. It is prudent for recreation or commercial activities to follow the applicable rules and the public to adhere to the residential covenants. If anyone is unsure of airspace rules in close proximity to the airport, then please contact Taupo Airport Authority to ensure that your intended activity is safe.
For information on where you can fly a drone or kite, go to taupo.govt.nz/rules-regulations-and-licenses/drones
