Hi from Taunton, Somerset

Hi, I’m Chris and I’m pleased to have joined the GADC community. I’m new to all this; I bought my DJI mini pro 3 late last year and as a raw beginner I’m finding all the information and advice provided here invaluable. I’m based in Taunton but spend some of the year in Ireland and I’ll need to investigate what I need to do to fly legally out there.

Hi @ChrisS and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Have you seen our members map? (Click the burger-menu in the top right) You may find some pilots living near you. :+1:t2:

We’re a well established club with many knowledgeable members so it’s very likely that any issues you come across will have been discussed here before. Our discussion forum has very powerful search features which should help you find what you need but if you get stuck you can post a new question in the #questions-and-answers category.

Looking for recommendations of places to fly? Check out our interactive map on Drone Scene - be sure to log in to gain access to the full suite of features and map layers:

And please feel free to add locations of your own too.

Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ as we’re quite different to other clubs and you’ll be eligible for some rather exclusive club discounts as your membership level increases :blush:

Welcome once again!

Welcome Chris.

Join the @group-southwest and then you can get informed of any meets that might be organised locally.

For Ireland you will need to take and pass the EASA test. You can do this via the irish website.

Also see this topic for a bit more information or ask on that topic if you have any queries.

Hello Chris and welcome to GADC from Fareham :smiley:

Welcome from Castle Cary

Welcome Chris. Being in Taunton you won’t be short of a few interesting places to fly. I was stationed at Culmhead in the early 90’s, and even though I live at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales now I thought the countryside around Taunton was quite beautiful at times.

Welcome up the road in Weston super Mare here
