We too use drones operationally and must comply with the same rules as everybody else. Whilst having fun flying a drone, it is important that they are not posing a risk to any other aircraft or people.
Drones must be flown safely and legally, within the limits of the operating category they are flying in. This includes Operator Registration, Pilot Competency & maintaining separation distances from members of the public & built-up areas as required. Conditions and limitations for each flying category are different, and much will depend on the weight of the drone, and where and how it will be flown. It is always the pilot’s responsibility to ensure the drone is being flown safely and within the law. Further information on the different flight categories, including separation distances and operator registration/pilot competency requirements can be found here : register-drones.caa.co.uk/drone-code
We hope this page helps anybody wishing to fly a drone, or if you concerned about others flying drones, have the information you require. The leading authority within Northern Ireland on aviation is the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). More information on owning or flying drones, privately and commercially, can be found at https://www.caa.co.uk/Consumers/Unmanned-aircraft-and-drones .
