3. You must be aware of the legal height limits

The legal height limit for all unmanned aircraft is 400ft (120m) above the terrain, but BMFA members have permission to operate their aircraft (other than multi-rotors) which weigh less than 7Kg higher than 400ft.

BMFA members are also permitted to operate sailplanes over 7kg, (but not exceeding 14kg), higher than 400ft above the terrain, provided that the aircraft is not flown at a height greater than 400ft above the pilot.

Multi-rotors and model aircraft weighing more than 7Kg must not be flown higher than 400ft without permission from the CAA.

For details of the full requirements for first person view operation, please visit www.bmfa.org.
