Drones are remote controlled aeroplanes, helicopters or other flying models often fitted with a camera. They have become very affordable in recent years and their popularity has increased.

The use of drones and remote controlled flying models is permitted only on the Flying Field in Richmond Park.

Uncontrolled model rockets are not permitted and national aviation law requires models to be under 20KG, not to drop article or animals from aircraft, to be seen at all times and flown safely, remain below 400 ft and stay at least 50m from people, vehicles and structures.

Additional laws relating to privacy and photography also apply to drones.
