Drone users urged to stay within the law3rd November 2017
Did you know that drone users who break the law could face a £2,000 fine or a prison sentence for more serious offences?
Guernsey Airport are keen to raise awareness of the rules surrounding drones.
Gus Paterson, Director of Civil Aviation Guernsey said:
'It's very important for drone operators to adhere to the published rules. They exist to ensure the safety of members of the public – a quick look on YouTube will show you the injuries that can occur when drones crash into people – but more importantly to ensure the safety of other aircraft.
Drones used illegally present a serious hazard to aircraft, particularly when they are taking off or landing, and with this in mind we will always press for the most serious penalties for offenders.'
