Where to fly in South East of England.
« on: October 22, 2017, 22:08:05 »
Apologies for the long post.

As a new drone pilot I am keen to fly a few interesting locations. I am a BMFA member have been flying fixed wing and helicopters on and off for many years and have bought myself a Phantom 4 Pro, really as an extension to my interest in photography, as much as model flying. I';ve done a few close to home test runs, circuits and system tests, so I am fairly familiar with the aircraft now and keen to use it to see if I can get some good smooth footage and work on my technique. As I flew scale helis before, I think that will translate well.

When I flew fixed and helis, it was always at a club or private flying site. With a drone, more possibilities are opened up, for instance I would never in a million years have considered trying to fly a heli in a public park, for fear of accident or injury to others. Whilst the consideration is definitely there with a drone, the stability and ease of flying means that with experience it would be possible. What I really don';t want to do is to find myself on the wrong side of the law, or to be inconsiderate of others. I am well aware of the ';Drone Code'; and all of the CAA ANO articles that cover the operation of unmanned aircraft up to 20kg.

With that in mind, my question is this, where do people fly in the south east of England, and can any one recommend a good site (not National Trust as they don';t allow it without permission and a CAA licence) for me to give the drone and my skills a good test.

Many thanks in advance.

Then please say where you are and how far you are prepared to travel.

Lands End is South, Dover is South, but try living at one and flying at the other regularly!   ::) ::)

I'm a member of SRFC whose main field is near Shoreham and also they have a rotary wing field at Poling.

I was told these guys did not allow drones so I did not contact them, I will look them up.
Thank you.
