I know this question has come up a lot, and I do try to follow to get to a clear answer, but I never seem to see a clear, definitive “yes” or “no”. I’m therefore a little reluctant to ask again as you may get annoyed and frustrated with me. Apologies.
I have a M2P and a Mini2.
I need to do some drone video (commercial) around an industrial estate near Dagenham.
Using Drone Assist on my phone, it indicates a red zone and that it is ‘High Risk’.
The airspace is a CTR (Controlled Traffic Region) and is controlled by London/City CTR. The summary states it is a regulated high risk area and operation of your drone may be hazardous or prohibited. The vertical limits are ground up to 2500ft.
The regulated Airspace contains a high volume of aircraft, and it is recommended you do not operate your drone here, but if you do, follow the CAA Dronecode ensuring the drone remains in sight at all times.
I am confused by this: the colour red, and the words ‘High Risk’ suggest I should not fly here. But then the statement about following the dronecode and keeping your drone in sight (which I would) suggest it is OK.
Can anyone bring clarity to this? Can I fly my drones here, or not?
