After a record breaking year and no signs of slowing down, it was disappointing to see the disruption caused to Gatwick Airport by reckless members of the public. Their actions have further marred the drone industry and will ultimately lead to more laws restricting law abiding drone owners. The laws will do little to stop someone buying a drone and using it in this way again, especially if someone has the ability to build their own drones, which cannot be restricted.
If you're new to the industry or keen to put your newly purchased drone to use, remember that there are laws which apply to you. Flying a drone at an airport will not only land you in prison, but it could kill people. We live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world with very relaxed drone laws, so go and explore the countryside and use your drone in a safe manner away from people and aeroplanes!
