Some amazing good news for xc pilots

Postby Dave Thomas » Fri Sep 07, 2018 8:26 pm

The royal security have just imposed a permanent ban on all types of aircraft, models, drones and kites around prince charles cottage in the cotswolds. This came with virtually no notice. Its 6km wide which is enourmous if you are trying to avoid it. However, all the locals clubs joined together and now have a signed agrement for xc HG and PG to just avoid the house grounds below 500ft.

Considering the airspace grabs that many commercial interests are imposing throughout the UK at present this really is I think quite staggeringly good news. It does go to show that we do have people on our side in very high places, and not even off the ground. Charles does have quite a background with his family regarding flight though, maybe that helped.

A huge thank you to those clubs and their members who worked on this.
