Bluebell Railway - Use of Drones and Other Aircraft Systems

The term "drone" is used below for brevity, but includes all unmanned aircraft and aircraft systems including, but not limited to, radio and remotely controlled 'planes. For the Bluebell Railway the same policy and arrangements apply to kites, balloons etc. Use of Unmanned Aircraft and Aircraft Systems is governed by the Civil Aviation Authority. See www.caa.co.uk. The regulations include the requirement not to fly within 50 metres of any person, vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under the control of the person in charge of the aircraft.

Drones must not be operated from Bluebell Railway property or within 50m of Bluebell Railway property, except where specific authority is given by either the Infrastructure or the Operations Director. That authority will be at the sole discretion of the Bluebell Railway and may be withdrawn without notice at any time. Any authority will be given only after a risk assessment and suitable controls have been put in place.
