Drones on The Broads


Recommended Posts

Hope it was moored! :) One of Lord Paul's friends lost his drone because the boat was moving ;  on running low on battery the drone remembered where it was launched, and  landed there with expensive results.

I wish they would not call these Drones


Some incorrectly refer to unmanned aerial vehicles lacking autopilots as Drones.


Although this term is more widely used and recoginsed by the public it has seen strong opposition from aviation professionals and government regulators familiar with correct use of language.


Anyway, what does rather worry me is their use in locations such as Salhouse and Ranworth to name but two areas which often have low flying aircraft on approach to Norwich airport overfly them.  While many a UAV pilot will have the skill and knowledge of this and act accordingly, others who see the footage and then think of bringing a newly purchased UAV on holiday with them to 'give a go' could well cause issues they had not originally thought would be of concern in these areas.
