Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries – CASA Survey

CASA Survey of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) use in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Industry

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) are interested in the current and potential uses of RPAS technologies (typically referred to as drones) in Australian agriculture. This study will inform CASA’s understanding of RPAS use in agriculture and how it could foster innovation in the agriculture sector through the reform of CASA regulations.

CASA have engaged KPMG to conduct this project, and they have developed a short survey to seek your views on how you use RPAS in agriculture, fishery or forestry operations, any barriers to adoption and opportunities for further growth of RPAS use. It is not a requirement of this survey that you currently use RPAS in your operations as CASA is interested as to why you may or may not be using RPAS and any opportunities you see that might enable you to increase your uptake of RPAS in the future.

Please follow the link to complete CASA’s survey on RPAS use, which should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete. It will remain open for response until Sunday 31 May 2020.

For your ease of reference and interest on the regulation of RPAS please refer to CASA’s website –

Thank you for taking part in this important survey.
