Information about Drones

This page is intended to inform drone pilots of safety information relevant to Wycombe Air Park. For full clarification of the laws and advice concerning drone flying, please visit the CAA website or

General rules for drone flying

For drones 7kg or over, or which are engaged on commercial operations, permission must be obtained from the airfield in order to operate a drone within the Aerodrome Traffic Zone (ATZ).

Aircraft regularly fly below 400ft in the ATZ when approaching or departing the airfield, therefore, Wycombe Air Park activily encourages any drone operator (regardless of drone mass) to talk to us before operating a drone near the airfield so that we can explain our operation to you.

Where is our ATZ?

Our Aerodrome Traffic Zone extends in a circle 2 nautical miles around the airfield

General Operating Rules

Stay below 400ft (120 metres) above the ground and 150ft (50 metres) away from people and property.
Your drone must be in your line of sight at all times.

The Drone Assist app (you can see more about this on the Dronesafe website) shows up to date safety information about airspace over the UK.
