New, from Retford

Hi all,

I am new to flying flying drones and recently purchased a Mavic Air.
Currently living in Retford and wanted to know where is best to fly in and around that area.
Flying around the local area has got tougher due to the recent no fly zone around Gamston Airport. Looking forward to receiving any advice or suggestions :blush: Thanks, Adam.

Hi Adam / @Adam , and welcome to GADC.

There quite a number of Mavic Air owners on the forum, so you are amongst good company, and plenty of knowledge to answer any questions you may have, that can be posted on #questions-and-answers . :+1:

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members. Whilst not every member has added themselves, I’m sure there are other members in your neck of the woods that will come and say Hi that may also have ideas on locations.

(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map :+1: : How to add yourself to the Members Map )

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown. This doesn’t mean that all these places can still be flown, but hopefully gives you some ideas to pursue.

Hello Adam! Another newbie here & first time drone bod. Went for the Air & no regrets, fiesty little rascals with capable camera. The support here is excellent & these guys will fast track you through the learning curve should you need it. I went from clueless to competent ( ish ) with their support. :+1: I avidly read the posts daily as this is building up my knowledge base & certainly has bolstered confidence.

Hi Adam,
Welcome to the GADC, as others have said, welcome to the place some of us call Home.
we aim to give advice to newbies that we hope will help you on your way to becoming a competent flyer.
Enjoy your time on here, get involved in the banter and drone talk.
People have found that being involved in “Meet Ups” can be a great help in getting you up in the air and feeling confident with your drone.

Thanks for the replies. Looking forward to getting back out with the drone. Poor weather conditions and work commitments have hindered such plans the last couple of weeks. Anybody who flies or has any suggestions where to fly around the Retford area would be great.
