Except, with the right procedures and permissions, drones can be flown safely and legally near and even within airports.
The media and some politicians would have you believe the opposite is true and this can be very damaging to drone operators. Not only that…it actually increases the overall risk of harm as surveys and similar jobs have to be carried out by people working at height.
Eyeup’s Graham Degg raised the necessary safety case paperwork for this flight involving two commercial drones operating 250m from Gatwick’s runway and he can help you too.
