Working with Drones in Swansea Airspace

Situated in the picturesque landscape of Wales, Swansea stands as the second-largest city in the region and holds the twenty-fifth position among the United Kingdom's cities. Nestled along the Swansea Bay coast, approximately fifty miles to the west of Cardiff, this city boasted a population of 241,300 as of the year 2022.

Within Swansea lies the Swansea airfield, a modest public airport strategically located in the city confines. Positioned on the outskirts, specifically in the district of Penllergare, it distinguishes itself as the sole airport in Wales to hold a Civil Aviation Authority Public Use Aerodrome Licence (PA28), thereby garnering the classification of a general aviation airfield.

Marked by a single runway, aligning itself north-south, this airport serves as a pivotal hub for general aviation activities in the region. Operating as a drone operator, our responsibility extends to securing all necessary permissions for flight within Swansea's restricted airspace and its environs—an imperative task underscored by its demarcation on aviation charts.

Such restricted zones, applicable to both manned and unmanned aircraft, necessitate meticulous approval processes. As the drone operator, the acquisition of Enhanced Non-Standard Flight clearance via the NATS website or local Air Traffic Control becomes paramount. Our commitment to ensuring safety and legality in our operations encompasses the handling of all necessary permissions, coupled with proactive communication regarding lead-in times throughout the process.

In navigating the regulatory landscape and securing the requisite approvals, our endeavors aim not only to comply with legal mandates but also to uphold the highest standards of safety in our drone operations within the Swansea airspace and its surrounding areas.

Online satellite imagery can be out-dated by up to 6 years and can be unreliable in planning and analysis needs. Drone survey imagery is typically 20 times the resolution of Google Earth, allowing for greater planning detail and when augmented by our 3D mapping capability, provides ground representation to the smallest detail.
