Drones and Airports

It is illegal to fly a drone inside an airport’s Flight Restriction Zone (FRZ) without prior permission. You can check the FRZ for Humberside Airport here.

Flying Drones Safely and Legally

When you fly a drone in the UK it is your responsibility to be aware of the rules that are in place to keep everyone safe.

The Department for Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority have collaborated to create Dronesafe.uk which is a simple guide designed to help ensure that drone users in the UK can easily access the information they need about how to fly their drones safely and legally, without endangering others.
