Blog 62 - Changes to the Air Navigation (Amendment) Order 2019 come into force on 13/03/19.
Primarily this extends the airfield restrictions. Please refer to CAP1763 which provides full guidance
In simple terms there are Flight Restriction Zones (FRZ) will change and new Runway Protection Zones (RPZ) will be introduced.
Runway Protection Zone will be from the end of the runway out to 5 kilometres and will be 1 kilometre wide and extend from each runway threshold into the approach to that runway.
Restriction Zones be either 2 nautical miles or 2.5 nautical miles radius depending on runway length.
The flight restriction zone is active at all times and applies to all small unmanned aircraft of any mass (even very small toys). To fly drones in the FRZ you will need permission from the Airport and or the ATC.
A map detailing the flight restriction zones at each protected aerodrome in the UK can be found at www.dronesafe.uk
