I have to opportunity to film at a location close to Gatwick airport.
The property owners are very cautious about permissions, as they’ve had problems in the past apparently.
I’m not sure what the issue was, but I suspect it’s something to do with Class D airspace and an operator flying too high…
So, the ball is in my court. The property owners want to see a permission from the CAA. Fair enough.
I don’t believe I need permission, but I need to find a way to approach the CAA without coughing up a silly fee and to get them to say ‘yep’ because it’s not an issue.
Is this possible? And if so, how do I go about doing that?
I’m not making any money from this…
And as an additional question, when requesting permission, how do I define an area of land that I want to fly in? Is there a standard?
