Drone flying – the legalities

drone

Drone flying has become enormously popular at areas within the Coastal Park and elsewhere.  Mostly they cause no harm whatsoever and mostly their pilots are sensible and considerate but we wanted to make people aware that pilots of drones have legal obligations under the Civil Aviation Authorities Air Navigation Orders which apply to all model aircraft, drones and full-size aircraft operating in the UK.

We have made available a two-page article published by the British Model Flying Association in conjunction with the CAA which gives guidance to pilots and would-be pilots.

Please share if you know anyone who flies a drone or is thinking of purchasing one.
