Changes to the legislation
On 13th March 2019 new legislation regarding drone flight restrictions around airfields came into force. The new legislation supersedes the drone flight restricted zones that were published in July 2018.
From this date, drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV’s (which includes model aircraft) are banned from flying within a Flight Restricted Zone around an airport or aerodrome. Therefore, flying drones in and around the Goodwood Estate and surrounding area require permission to be obtained before they are flown, as a Flight Restricted Zone is in place around Goodwood Aerodrome.
Anyone wishing to use a drone within this restricted airspace must apply to Goodwood Aerodrome, primarily Air Traffic Services, for permission. We recommend that you refer to the NATS checklist before you start completing the application form.
