Hi All,

Just putting this out for comments.

I read earlier this week that the national trust are employing "heavies" to stop Pilots from flying over their land - Not that they own the airspace despite what they believe. And this got me thinking.

I have had a few "busy bodies" shout out "stop flying that! - i'm calling the police" and whilst i have always been in compliance with the CAA regulations I have always had to tell these people to bugger off and mind their own business. But, i am now thinking that these people are bound to the ANO 2016 too - as we all are when boarding a plane. So I am now warning anyone who tries to disrupt me that they are in breach of the ANO 2016 part 240 which states that :-

Endangering safety of an aircraft 240. A person must not recklessly or negligently act in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft, or any person in an aircraft.  

In doing so they are commiting a criminal offence and could be prosecuted.

I used to have lots of people say "That's cool", but with the recent bad press i am getting a noticable increase in people who feel it is appropriate to shout out expletives despite not knowing the law. My think now is use the same protections afforded to all pilots - the right to complete their duties safely - against these people.

Would love to open a disccusion to my fellow pilots and get your thoughts...

If you fly more than 500m away from you, you are not in compliance (From your range test posts) whether your have houses approaching you or not...

I carry a tazer with me when I'm flying, it saves a lot of unnecessary chit-chat. Just be very careful to hold it away from the controller when you use it {:4_181:}
