Prejudicing the Safe Operation of an Aircraft or Vessel is an offence under section 205 of the Crimes Act 1900, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
An ‘aircraft’ is any machine that can derive support in the atmosphere from the reactions of the air.
A ‘vessel’ is a water craft of any description that is capable of being used as a means of transportation on water.
You do not actually have to be on board the aircraft or vessel to be found guilty of the offence.
