I was asking historic scotland with reference flying a drone over there land and this was there response,
Hi John, if you’re not launching the drone from our property, you can fly at a distance from the property without seeking our permission (although you would have to gain permission from the landowner where you were launching from).
While the CAA new regulations allow overflying in some of the new categories and under certain conditions, they also state the following “Operators are still subject to rules and regulations imposed by other bodies and organisations.”
We manage our properties on behalf of Scottish Ministers (under the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014 and the Scheme of Delegation: Properties in Care). We have a legal duty to reduce the risks to the safety of our visitors and staff at our sites as much as is reasonably practicable.
For this reason, we do not permit unrestricted UAS activity to occur over our sites regardless of launch point. If the drone were to malfunction it could cause injury to visitors or staff and poses a significant threat to the safety of Scotland’s heritage.
Overflying our sites can only be done by prior arrangement so we can make sure it’s carried out safely. We’d ask you to be considerate in your drone flying and to admire the sites from a safe distance and to not fly directly over them, at any height, unless we’ve given you permission through our drone application.
surely the rules dont apply to mini 2?
and as far as the drone code you cannot fly a drone closer than 50m to a building, and if you fly over a building there must be a 50m space.
Surely Historic scotland cant dictate there own rules over the Caa. Now these rules only apply to drones, surely there is more risk of a passenger jet flying over historic scotland property and crashing and causing damage ie lockerbie as an example…
ARE THEY FLUFFING OVER THE RULES TO SUITE THEMSELFS?
