Stealing Aircraft is an offence under Section 154B(1) of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you ‘stole’ an aircraft, which means you took it away without the owner’s consent and intended to deprive the owner of it permanently.
An ‘aircraft’ is any machine that can derive support in the atmosphere from the reactions of the air.
