Drone mid air conflict awarenesss

The CAA and the UK Airprox Board have made it clear that the number of reported airprox with drones (also known as unmanned airborne systems, UAVs, etc) is increasing year on year. The government is introducing legislation regarding drone operation near ‘protected airfields’, which by definition¬†does not include¬†most air sport and GA airfields.

To assist clubs in their efforts to understand and if necessary mitigate the risk from drones, the BGA has brought together drone related safety information, resources and guidance on a new BGA webpage at https://members.gliding.co.uk/bga-safety-management/drone-mid-air-conflict-awareness/
