|Drones are increasingly used by both commercial operators and hobbyists and are increasingly popular throughout the UK.
The airspace around airports and airfields is protected by an area called the Flight Restriction Zone (FRZ) and Runway Protection Zone (RPZ) To fly a drone in this area requires permission from Air Traffic Control (ATC)
Flight Restriction Zones are a lot larger than people may think and span 5km from the airport runway. Using a drone and not knowing the rules and regulations may be put people in danger and puts you at the risk of prosecution.
Download a Drone Code poster which will show you how to use a drone safely.
