How high can we fly?

The maximum altitude we are permitted to fly is 400ft (121m).

This is measured from the take-off/landing point.

How far can we fly?

The maximum distance we are allowed to fly from the pilot is 500m (1,640ft).

This is providing we have visual line of sight (VLOS) of the aircraft.

How close are we allowed to fly to people & structures?

We are allowed 50m (164ft) if the people, vehicles, vessels and structures are not under our control.

We always do our best to inform all relevant parties and stakeholders what’s happening, as this puts everybodies mind at ease.

Can we fly in a built-up area?

Yes! Our Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO), as issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), gives us this capability.

Are we allowed to overfly crowds?

Yes, as long as it’s less than 1,000 present at the event.

However, as we take safety very seriously, we will always try to stay away from the crowds, since we do not wish anyone to get hurt if something went wrong.
