Got a Drone / Unmanned Aircraft and thinking of flying it in the UK or Abroad?

 

Here we will explain to you the UK Law on using Drones / Unmanned Aircraft and the Drones Code for safe flying that you need to follow.

 

Drones / Unmanned Aircraft have now become so popular in the UK and the laws relating to the flying of unmanned aircraft have evolved and there is now a UK Drone Code by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) which anyone flying a drone must adhere to.

 

CAA Flying Drones: https://www.caa.co.uk/Consumers/Model-aircraft-and-drones/Flying-drones/

 

Drone Code: http://dronesafe.uk/drone-code/

 

Drone Code - 400ft (120m)

 

SAFETY AWARENESS OF YOUR DRONE

 

Always keep your Drone in line of sight

 

Always stay below 400ft (120m) to comply with the drone code

 

AWARE OF YOUR DRONE AT ALL TIMES

 

Every time you fly your Drone you must follow the Manufacturers Instructions

 

You must keep the right distance from People and Property

--People & Properties - 150ft (50m)

--Crowds & Built up areas - 500ft (150m) don’t overfly

 

LEGAL

 

Legal responsibility every time you fly a Drone lies with YOU and failure to fly responsibly could result in a Criminal Prosecution

 

Stay well away from Aircraft, Airports & Airfields, if your Drone endangers the safety of an Aircraft it is a Criminal Offence

 

REMEMBER

 

Don’t fly near Airports or Airfield

Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)

Observe your drone at all times - stay 150ft (50m) away from People and Property

Never fly near Aircraft

Enjoy responsibly

New drone laws bring added protection for passengers

 

Laws will restrict drones from flying above 400 feet and within 1 kilometre of airport boundaries.

 

-- the government is introducing height limits to help make sure drones are used safely as the sector grows

-- limits around airports are being tightened up with new restrictions to prevent drones from causing harm

-- owners will have to register their drones and take online safety tests to improve accountability

 

New laws being introduced today (30 May 2018) will restrict all drones from flying above 400 feet and within 1 kilometre of airport boundaries.

 

Following a year-on-year increase in the report of drone incidents with aircraft – with 93 in 2017 - these measures will reduce the possibility of damage to windows and engines of planes and helicopters. The changes will come into effect on 30 July 2018.
