Drones are proving to be highly topical these days! They are currently flying in an area of law that is still very much evolving in the UK – and amid much turbulence it would seem! What exactly is the ‘Drone Code’ for personal use these days? A drone carrying a camera cannot be flown within: • 150m of a congested area • 150m of any open air assembly of more than 1,000 people • 50m of any person or thing not under the pilot’s control Drones must not endanger any person or property and should always be kept away

from aircraft and airfields. Drones may be flown legally if: • They’re not carrying a camera • The pilot can ensure the flight can be safely made • The pilot can maintain unaided visual contact with the device • They do not drop anything from it that can cause harm or damage Drones flown commercially need a licence from the Civil Aviation Authority. Contact your local police or dial 101 if you are concerned about unsafe or intrusive local use of drones. Kingston Police, Neighbourhood Watch and Business Watch are all on social media.
