Hi Rich - welcome to GADC from across the estuary in Gorseinon :+1::+1::+1:
Good to see we have another member in the area - need to get a local get together set up ready for that one dry day we’re due this summer :man_facepalming:t2::man_shrugging:t2::joy::+1::+1::+1:

Hi Richard @richie3 and welcome to GADC :+1: :+1:

Hi @richie3 and welcome to GADC. You’ll find that most ATC are very accomodating when it comes to flying in their airspace, as long as you get in touch, ask permission, and fly responsibly. Get in touch with them and provide a map of the area you want to fly, let them know you can reduce/ cap your height to whatever they deem suitable if it allows you some flight time close to home. But to be honest, once you’ve flown close to home so many times, you’ll find yourself wanting to travel further affield

Welcome :slight_smile:

i know the weather has been blydu aweful hasnt it i,m not that far away from gorseinon i,m just over by the airport i have been looking for spots to fly around the estuary out over the marsh

Have a try from Penclawdd at GG’s car park. You’re outside the FRZ for Swansea airport so you should be good to go flying out towards Loughor bridge. Just be careful of the seagulls- they hate drones. If you get attacked by one the best answer is to go straight up - they’ll leave you alone for a little while but they will come back so stay alert for the little gits :flushed:
I’ve got some contacts at the airport - when I get home later this week I’ll dig them out then you’ll be able to get permission to fly within the FRZ :+1:

thank you john your a gentleman

…… I can assure you that is a malicious rumour :man_shrugging:t2::rofl::+1:
