I talked to a past member of the MAAA committee on the weekend, he keeps on top of the CASA goings on in our sport, he believes, from his MAAA committee friends that all members of the MAAA will be exempt from the registration and licencing, ....
This appears to be only for members flying exclusively at CASA approved flying sites.

I see this as an issue for 'Old Timer' flyers, (in W.A. at least) where we rely a lot on land owners (farmers) to grant access to fields (which are constantly changing due to change of ownership, cropping, grazing, access issues etc).

regulations now available.

So a kid flying a 300g park flyer in a local park will now be a criminal?

at least gliders seem to have been exempted from registration.

Seem drone delivery will fit the standard multinational business model:

Not sure how the drone delivery idea can possibly work if you have to have line of sight....presumably drone racing is now a thing of the past as well...

E-mails sent to the Minister and to my local MP, let's see what happens next.

It's not just modelflying! In UK, commercial airfields are in the process of making a 'Land Grab' of airspace that will affect all other airspace users and those on the covered surface area. Many gliding clubs and Sport aviation facilities are coming under severe pressure. TAG Aviation at Farnborough is squeezing Lasham Gliding Society and Southampton is intending to significantly expand its dedicated airspace, as is Exeter. No doubt other Airport Authorities are pursuing this Gold Rush.
I will accept that change is a permanent state of Human progress but it would appear that in UK, the CAA is unable, or has lost the will, to protect recreational flying in all its forms.
For now, it's still worth banging on the desks of our Parliamentary representatives and supporting the advocacy efforts of our National Association. Perhaps we need an aeronautical equivalent of "Right to Roam".

Many times like this, gov organisations over-react and go to extremes which is apparently what is happening in the UK.
Watching some videos from there on Painless360 site, I see he consults a bloke who pretty much specialises in deciphering the new regulations.

In Aus it appears registration and licencing will have a minimum age requirement of 16 years so I can only imagine the outcome of that would be, the parents would need to take the responsibility, which could be a good thing and maybe expanded to many other applications.

Especially since in this day and age, taking responsibility for ones actions seems to be a thing of the past in many instances.

Overall though, the rulings here seem to encourage "joining a recognised, CASA authorised club".
Just rejoined our local model flying club here after 20 years away doing other things and the first thing I noticed was the addition of rules we used to beg them to introduce for safety but no one seemed to care.

So in those days it was down to common sense and pier pressure and giving someone an earful.
Apparently these days, according to anyone from any workplace health and safety, common sense does not exist anymore, "no such thing as common sense" I hear. Sort of explains a lot these days.

The summary of CASA's Australian consultation:

I note that in the last paragraph on page 20, there is concern about low uptake causing the scheme to fail - lets hope so!
