June 17, 2016

In light of the Bermuda Heroes Weekend and associated events, the Bermuda Department of Civil Aviation said they want remind the public that the “use of small unmanned aircraft – also referred to as drones – must comply with the applicable legislation.”

A spokesperson said, “This is particularly important for the Parade of Bands scheduled to be held on Saturday due to its proximity to the Airport and Air Traffic Control Zone.”


“Operation within this area is strictly prohibited unless prior permission has been obtained by the Air Traffic Control and the Department of Civil Aviation.”

“Safety of aircraft arriving and departing is paramount and we appreciate the public’s assistance by not using or encouraging the use of drones in these areas without prior permission.”

    “Permission is required for a flight path over land you do not own” and
    “…illegal to fly your drone over any government land without permission” – ha ha ha ha! That’s a good one. Would love to know how many drone flyers are seeking permission from land owners.

    “Do not fly … within 50 meters of a person, vehicle or structure” – so don’t fly your drone at less than 50 meters altitude, because that is basically everywhere in Bermuda.

    “Images you obtain from flying a drone are subject to privacy laws” – Bermuda has privacy laws?

    I feel this is too little to late unless there have been other notices during the weeks leading up now. This is the first notice I’ve seen; the night before the weekend long party. Let’s hope the drone operators realise lives are a risk if they operation in the airport’s zone.
