GO for your launch in Australia!
Register your weather
balloon at CASA
To make sure you get your ascent permit by CASA (Australian Airtraffic Control, Civilian Airtraffic), especially if you want to launch a weather balloon or unmanned free balloon for the first time in Australia, we will help you step by step through the application process. Here we answer the most important questions:
How does the registration process work?
To be allowed to launch your weather balloon or as CASA says unmanned free balloon in Australia, you must register your weather balloon with CASA. To do this you need to provide a few details about your mission and email them back to CASA. Your application to launch a weather balloon will be reviewed by CASA and you will be issued the ascent permit.
What information does CASA need?
In summary, to verify the ascent of your weather balloon or unmanned free balloon in Australia, CASA requires three things from you by email:
- “Notification of a Balloon Release”
- “Risk Assessment”
- “Proof of insurance”
You will email these three documents to CASA, who will review your documents and issue your ascent permit to launch your weather balloon to the edge of space.
