Righto, There's a Civil Aviation Safety Regulation ( CASR) which regulates the operation of a model aircraft at night. The regulation requires: 101.390 Operating model aircraft at night (1) A person may operate a model aircraft at night only in accordance with the written procedures of an approved aviation administration organisation. Penalty: 25 penalty units. (2) An offence against subregulation (1) is an offence of strict liability. Note: For strict liability, see section 6.1 of the Criminal Code. and the above extract can be found here: Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 The "written procedures of an approved aviation administration organisation" regarding this particular regulation can be found here: http://www.maaa.asn.au/images/pdfs/mops/MOP018-Night-Flying-Procedure.pdf My question is: Can a person , "Joe public", not a member of any association,group,and does not intend to be a member of any such approved aviation administration organisation, under Australian Law simply a person who has purchased a toy aeroplane operate the model at night using the document above as the overarching regulation requires? I would appreciate the 'learned forums' opinion on the matter.
