Drones - Have You Been Buzzed?

Rate this item
(2 votes)

A local resident has recently been buzzed by a drone in her back garden and, with the advent of fine weather, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the recreational flying of drones may increase during the summer months.

As was evident from the resident’s experience, not all drone users act responsibly either deliberately or through ignorance of the UK Drone code published by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Simply put, the Code states:

Don’t fly near airports or airfields

Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)

Observe your drone at all times – stay 150 ft (50m) away from people and property

Never fly near aircraft

Enjoy responsibly

For further information visit dronesafe.uk and if you have any concerns about drones being used in your area, either from a safety or privacy perspective, contact your local police on 101. The Council is not the enforcement agency.
