Not sure whether to post this here in Q&A or in ‘Where to fly in the UK.’ My question is: Does anyone else find the Drone Assist map confusing? I live in west London, not near Heathrow or any other airport. According to the DA map, the area around me has three different shades of pink. I’ve called them pale, mid and dark on the attached example.
Dark pink is central London, Heathrow Airport and a few other places. I can’t fly there, I understand that. (I also know the rules about crowds, people, 400ft max etc).
What I find confusing is the other shades of pink circles. When I tap on the pale pink area I get ‘high risk’ at the top of the screen. I live right on the edge of the mid pink area (you can see the pin). It says ‘London CTR’…what does that mean? is ‘High Risk’ the same as NFZ?
Any help appreciated.
