Drone flyers and GA community to come together for 2018 LAA Rally

Drone enthusiasts across the UK are being offered the opportunity to join the General Aviation (GA) community at the 2018 Light Aircraft Association Rally at Sywell Aerodrome.

This is the latest activity in the Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) ‘Share the Air’ campaign, which aims to build stronger links between drone flyers and GA.

Attendees will be given the chance to see for themselves the range of flying opportunities that exist in their local area, as well as receive top tips on how they can use their drones responsibly, enabling them to expand their love of flying.

Expert advice

As well as the opportunity to view over 1,000 aircraft and enjoy industry exhibitions from a variety of aviation experts, attendees to the CAA’s Drone Safety Zone can:

- Check out the latest drone models with global drone manufacturer Parrot

- Enjoy a hands-on experience of piloting a drone with YouTube influencers On the Kitchen Table

- The CAA will also be available to provide the latest information on the UK and European regulations covering drones.

Jonathan Nicholson, Assistant Director at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said:

“Recreational drone use is flying high and as more and more drone enthusiasts take to the skies it is vital that they understand the responsibility they have in ensuring the safety of everyone using UK airspace.

“As such, it is vital both drone users and the GA communities are equipped to share the air in a safe and enjoyable way.

“By attending this year’s rally, drone enthusiasts again have an invaluable opportunity to get to grips with the world of flying, understand the environment they operate in and maybe even be inspired to one day get in a cockpit themselves.”
