Have You Spotted A Drone

According to the Civilian Aviation Authority (CAA) who regulate all non-military flying in the UK, a drone should not be flown higher than 400 feet, must be kept in line of sight at all times, not flown within 150 feet (50 metres) of people or property, or within 500 feet (150 metres) of crowds and built up areas. If you spot anyone doing this then you are to report it to the Police on 101.

If you feel that the drone is being flown in such a way that could endanger an aircraft then please call both RAF Shawbury on 01939 250351 Ext 7221, if the sighting is in Shropshire or the surrounding areas, and then the Police on 101. The RAF Shawbury Duty Ops Controller will take the details and pass it immediately to Air Traffic Control and the flying squadrons. Your assistance and vigilance is greatly appreciated.
