Hi, I’m a new Mini 2 owner and looking forward to the greater freedom we’ll hopefully have come Jan 1st.
But I want to stay legal and I know that restricted zones will still apply - so I’m trying to understand them.
The dronescene map is great (and I’ve already flow the 2 west London sites listed) but I’m confused about the zones on the map.
There’s a central london zone (labelled HYDE PARK) which is very clear - Drone No Fly Zone - fair enough.
But there’s a larger zone which includes where I live (NW6) which is the one I’m confused about.
It’s just labelled “THE SPECIFIED AREA” and the info box says:
Red zones are regulated high-risk areas and operation of your drone may be hazardous or prohibited.
The flight of aircraft within this area is restricted in accordance with certain specified conditions. Notes attached to this area provide additional information
What are these notes and restrictions? I can’t find them anywhere. The NATS website has the same zone but is similarly unclear. I believe this zone is called R160 - but I can’t find the actual rules for it.
Can anyone shed any light?
