The Civil Aviation Safety Authority is investigating whether Pauline Hanson breached safety rules, after the senator posted a video of her flying a drone from a Townsville high-rise.\nSenator Hanson posted a clip to Twitter on Wednesday showing her piloting a drone from the balcony of an apartment block.\n\n\u201cI\u2019m flying the drone here. First time ever. And, oop, up and down, right here we go. Now we\u2019re going to go out, hahaha. Oh golly. As long as I keep it under 400ft I\u2019m right,\u201d Hanson says in the clip. \u201cBut anyway that\u2019s the first time I\u2019ve ever done this.\u201dIn the clip Hanson says the drone belongs to One Nation chief of staff James Ashby.\nThe senator is potentially in breach of a number of CASA safety guidelines concerning drone use.\n \nRules state that drones "must not fly closer than 30 metres to vehicles, boats, buildings or people" or be flown "over populous areas".\n \nCASA were alerted to the video by a number of individuals on social media, including CIO Australia.\n\nCASA spokesperson Peter Gibson said the authority would be seeking to speak to Senator Hanson about the video.\n"We will be speaking with the Senator as soon as possible. She is overseas right now. We have reviewed the video and have a number of questions to ask of the drone operator. CASA will then decide what action to take. It is too early to say if any safety rules may have been breached."\nCASA has the power to issue fines for breaching safety regulations up to $9000. If someone is injured by a drone, the authority can seek prosecution.\n"The video is a timely reminder of the importance of always following the drone safety rules," Gibson added.\n"You must fly recreational drones more than 30 metres from people, not over crowds or groups of people, not cause a hazard to people, property or aircraft and stay under 400ft in controlled airspace. You must not fly on the approach or departure paths of airports."\nSpeaking on Sydney radio station 2GB, Hanson denied she had done anything wrong.\n \n"Throw the cuffs on me, take me away, drag me away, I've been there done that, it's nothing new for me," she said. "I don't need a fine, I don't want a fine.\n \n"It was not anywhere near a public place, it was not over a public field, it was not within 30 metres of anyone, it was over gravel, there was no danger to anyone, it was not near an airport.\u201d\n \nIn 2015, a Queensland drone pilot received an$850 finebased on videos he had uploaded to YouTube.\nIn May, CASA launched a smartphone app which helps recreational drone pilots avoid restricted airspace, and reminds them of safety rules.
