Ban on drones flying over prison and airport

Fri, 14 Dec 2018

It’s been announced that it will be illegal to fly drones near to the Airport and Isle of Man Prison from the next year.

From January 1, it'll be against the law to fly any unmanned craft weighing between 250g and 20kg within five kilometres of the airport and at any height over the prison.

The Civil Aviation Administration says breaking these restrictions will lead to a fine of up to £2,500.
