I’m a newbie. I just passed my A2 CofC a couple of hours ago and I’ve only done a couple of flights to test out my drone (DJI Mavic Mini 3 Pro) as part of my A2 CofC self declaration form.
I am planning a trip down to Folkestone to see a friend on Wednesday and I had a couple of questions to the group:
Firstly, does anyone have any recommendations for areas to get some good shots and for a newbie like me to get some practice in. ( I have pinned Mermaid Beach as an option, looks interesting from the air and I’ve been there once before, but I’m open to other areas.
I noticed there is a blue flight restriction zone in the area - but I’m unfamiliar with this sort of flight restriction? It says it’s a “TEMPO DANGER AREA (TDA) EG D098B ACTIVATED” - and it is an “official ‘No Fly Zone’ (a Temporary Flight Restriction) and it applies according to the following criteria, in the region indicated by the boundary shown.” and that it is Active in 6 days, 8 hours
Active: Monday, February 6, 2023 2:00:00 AM until Monday, February 6, 2023 4:00:00 PM (UTC).
If my interpretation is correct, this means that from the dates mentioned above this BLUE area will become a RED area?
Any and all help welcome : )
