DJI AeroScope Supplied By Heliguy Detected Drones at British Grand Prix

DJI AeroScope – supplied by Heliguy – was used to detect drones being flown illegally during the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone.

Were drones really to blame for near-miss with plane?

Call us sceptical, but a recent news story has raised a few eyebrows at Heliguy HQ this week. The article in question? A Virgin Atlantic jet faced a collision at 14,000ft with two drones as it was approaching Heathrow Airport to land. This press coverage – which has done the rounds on various media sites – got us scratching our heads, deliberating on whether the offending objects were indeed two rogue UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), or maybe – just maybe – something else? Now, this isn’t a case of us... Read More

Drone users can only fly within the restriction zones if they have the correct permission from air traffic control or the airport. The Government has acted to bring the law change in ahead of a new Drones Bill which will give police significantly increased powers to deal... Read More

No-fly zone for drones to be extended at UK airports

An extended no-fly zone for drones around UK airports is to come into force next month. Yesterday, the Government announced that new legislation to ban UAVs from flying within 5km of runways will begin on Wednesday, March 13. The enlarged zone will better protect the UK’s airports from those misusing drones, the Government has said. The law is clear that flying a drone near an airport is a serious criminal act. We’re now going even further and extending the no-fly zone to help keep our airports secure and our skies safe. Anyone...
