Received a new drone for Christmas? Fantastic! They are a great piece of amazing technology, but we need to share the air safely and responsibly by following the Civil Aviation Authority Drone and Model Aircraft Code.


Did you know that Point 3 of the Drone and Model Aircraft Code says “Always look and listen out for other aircraft that may be flying below 400ft, such as air ambulances, police helicopters, and low-flying military aircraft.”


Helicopters from No. 1 Flying Training School, based at RAF Shawbury, routinely fly down to 100ft in Shropshire and surrounding areas, well below the 400ft maximum for drones.


Help us to all stay safe by being extra vigilant when flying in Shropshire and surrounding areas, and if you can, bring a friend or family member to keep a lookout too.
