A close view of an RAF Typhoon in Glen Coe yesterday (not with my drone but still ) got me thinking about being better prepared for areas where low flying military aircraft can appear out of nowhere.
I’ve tweaked my work processes to add contacting the RAF Safety Centre to check before I fly in likely jet hotspot areas (arguably, I should have been doing this already - oops, my bad).
For the benefit of others, here’s the relevant information I gathered:
- General page on low flying : https://www.gov.uk/guidance/military-low-flying
- Low flying information for England, Wales and Scotland - 01780 417558 (Mon - Fri 8am-4pm)
- Low flying timetable: www.gov.uk/government/publications/operational-low-flying-training-timetable
- RAF Safety Centre Contact details: Freefone 0800 515 544 (7am–11pm Mon-Thurs and 7am – 5pm on Fri)
