Notifications of Drone activity:   The Auckland Airspace Users Group writes:

Hi everyone,

I have recently been contacted by a pilot flying commercial UAV’s to discuss the possibility of the Auckland Airspace Users Group facilitating the establishment of a notification service for operations below 1000 feet within the Auckland City MBZ.

For those that are familiar with the RNZAF Low Level Flight Advice system, the concept is broadly similar.  Anyone interested would be added to an e-mail distribution list, whenever an aircraft operator (either UAV or manned) wants others notified of a planned operation they request that a notification be issued, and an e-mail notification is transmitted to all on the distribution list.

Between Airshare and the respective control towers, feedback indicates that interfaces between manned and unmanned aircraft within controlled airspace are functioning ok.  The feedback also indicates that outside controlled airspace this interface could be improved.  Basically this is an attempt to improve communications and remove the surprise element when multiple aircraft arrive to operate in the same location.

I would be interested in any feedback on this concept, along with an indication of whether you would want to be included on the distribution list.  The area initially being considered is the Auckland City MBZ below 1000 feet.
