Channel Island "DRONE SAFETY!"

When you fly a drone or any unmanned aircraft in the Channel Islands it is your responsibility to be aware of the rules that are in place to keep everyone safe.

 

In line with UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the Channel Island Director of Civil Aviation - Jersey ATC have devised our own "Drone Code"


The "Drone Code" is just a few simple things to remember in order that you can operate your drone or small unmanned aircraft in a safe manner and within the regulations.
