Drone Laws in Fiji
In this post, you’ll learn which laws you need to keep in mind for drone flights in Fiji.
In Fiji, drone users have to register with the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji (CAAF). Application Forms are available for registration, which you can fill out in advance and mail to [email protected] or hand in at the airport upon arrival. Recreational drone users should use form OP 137, form OP 138 is for commercial pilots. Special regulations apply to commercial users and drones above 7 kg starting mass. In these cases, you have to be licensed as a pilot.

Further requirements for drone pilots in Fiji
Depending on the classification of your copter you need an aviation liability insurance in Fiji. However, I recommend that you always buy drone liability insurance.
There are three weight classes in Fiji: Light RPAS (500 g – 20 kg), Medium RPAS (20 – 150 kg) and Heavy (> 150 kg)
To domestic airports, a distance of 3 kilometers should be kept. At international airports, the minimum distance is 5 kilometers.
