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.
You can find a map of the Humberside Airport FRZ and further information on the Drone Safe website here. The steps on the code are outlined below and you can also download the code. Steps in the CAA’s Drone Code include:
- Don’t fly near airports or airfields
- Remember to stay below 400ft (120m)
- Observe your drone at all times – stay 150ft (approx 50m) away from people and property
- Never fly near aircraft
- Enjoy responsibly
Anyone wishing to fly a drone within the Humberside Airport FRZ must contact the airport at least 24 hours in advance and should not proceed with the drone flight until permission has been agreed. To contact us about this, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
