Drone Flying

Operators flying drones near any military airfield must ensure they are aware of the UK policy for their safe operation. The Drone Code forms part of the Civil Aviation Authority's advice and guidance to drone operators which can be found on their website.

Night flying

Training at night is essential to ensure aircrew are proficient in the necessary skills and to exploit our technological edge.

The amount of night low flying remains proportional to the operational requirement.

Night flying can commence half an hour after dark falls and lasts until half an hour before dawn.
