Operation of Cranes, Directed Light, Fireworks, Toy Balloons, and Sky Lanterns within UK Airspace.

Working, building and events in the vicinity of an Airport can present significant risks if not managed responsibly by developers. This can include events using fireworks / lighting / sky lanterns, construction sites and drone flying.

As a result, we always encourage you to communicate with the Airport, should the activity fall within at least 6km of the Airport.

If the activity or development requires the use of lifting equipment, mobile or tower cranes, they should be operated in accordance with British Standard 7121 and CAA Publication – CAP 1096. The Airport should also be notified of plans to erect these cranes at least 21 days in advance. The notification to the Airport should include the following information to allow us to perform our Airport Safeguarding checks:

On this or any other Airport Safeguarding issue such as operation of a Crane or Tall Construction Equipment within 6km of the aerodrome;

DO NOT proceed until permission has been granted by Email.

(We do not operate a telephone number for Safeguarding applications. Postal applications can be addressed to ‘Airport Safeguarding – Solent Airport’ or emailed directly to )



The drone flight restriction zone around airports has changed. The government has introduced a new rule stating that the 1km restriction from the airfield boundary is replaced by a restriction using the airfield’s existing aerodrome traffic zone, which has a radius of two and a half nautical miles and then five kilometres by one kilometre zones starting from the point known as the ‘threshold’ at the end of each of the airfield’s runways. Both zones extend upwards to a height of 2,000 feet above the airfield. For more information visit External Hyperlink

It is illegal to fly any drone at any time within these restricted zones unless you have permission from air traffic control at the airport.

If you intend to operate a drone in the vicinity of Solent Airport, please input the postcode or location of intended operation, please use this map External Hyperlink.

The Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) is highlighted in blue.  The location you input will show as a red dot.  If the red dot is inside the FRZ then it is an offence to fly a drone without the permission of Solent Airport.

For permission, email details of location, date, time and height of intended operation to Solent Airport at – expect a response within 24 hours – do not operate in the FRZ until permission has been given.
