The use of drones in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole
Drone use is growing at a rapid rate in the UK and our skies are some of the busiest anywhere in the world. BCP Council is working with Bournemouth International Airport to ensure that residents and visitors understand how to fly their drones safely and legally, without endangering others.
Dronesafe has developed a Drone Code which helps drone flyers use their drone responsibly. The code also ensures that members of the public are protected, whilst drone users can still have fun, without posing a risk to other aircraft or people.
- Don’t fly near airports or airfields
- Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)
- Obeserve your drone at all times- stay 150ft (50m) away from people and property
- Never fly near aircraft
- Enjoy responsibly
