City Airport Manchester: blue shades is where you cannot fly your drone from next month without permission

City Airport Manchester has given out an info graphic on where and where a drone can be flown from next month, and it affects much of Trafford!

Urmston and Davyhulme are worst affected and all around Trafford Centre and Trafford Park, here to fly a drone you will need to comply with the rules which you can find by clicking this LINK

Manchester Airport will also have the same restrictions although on a bigger scale, although we do not have any infor graphic at this time, we can say for sure Hale Barns, Hale, Bowdon, Altrincham, Timperley and some parts of Sale and Broadheath are affected.

It is not all so bad for drone flyers though, you can contact the airports about flying your drone and special permission may be granted, for instance if you are in a club and are on a field somewhere just enjoying flying your drone, it would be expected this will be fine.
