Drone Safety

Drone use is growing at a rapid rate in the UK and our skies are some of the busiest anywhere in the world. 

To ensure that those who wish to fly drones are equipped with the information required to do so legally and safely the CAA and NATS have developed https://dronesafe.uk

The website also provides an interactive map showing the Flight Restricted Zones (FRZs) created around all UK airports.

You may be prosecuted if you fly ANY small unmanned aircraft within a Flight Restricted Zone without the appropriate authorisation.
