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.

The code above can be applied to all of the Channel Islands.

Please Note: Drones are not permitted to fly anywhere on Sark.



The Civil Aviation Authority in the UK has produced a short animated video to explain the basic rules:





Note: In the Channel Islands it is the Director of Civil Aviation who issues you with a permission for Aerial Work - not the UK CAA.
