This question already has an answer here:

The other day, a friend of mine told me that a drone was overflying on his backyard and he hit it throwing up a rock to it.

That incident bring me a few questions. Is that legal? The air in my backyard is included as my property? Using an exaggerated example: if an helicopter is overflying my backyard, am I allowed to bring it down because it is invading my property?

Is that legal?

No, it is the crime of "Willful Damage" in Australian jurisdictions.

The air in my backyard is included as my property?

No, neither are any minerals that might be under it.

Using an exaggerated example: if an helicopter is overflying my backyard, am I allowed to bring it down because it is invading my property?

No, in addition to willful damage this would be Reckless Endangerment, Aggravated Assault and Attempted Murder.
