All flights cancelled at Gatwick airport due to drone flights

All flights cancelled at Gatwick airport due to drone flights

[13:16 thu,20.December 2018   by ]    

Since yesterday evening, drones have been causing massive disruption to air traffic over London´s Gatwick Airport. Several drones are said to have been sighted over the tarmac on Wednesday evening, after which all take-offs were stopped for about six hours and landings diverted to other airports. Although the air traffic was initially released again during the night, it was stopped again after another drone sighting -- now at noon on Thursday everything is still standing still, while the police are searching for the drone pilots. Thousands of air passengers are affected.

Further details are not yet known, such as the type of drone(s) involved. However, there seems to be evidence that this is more of a deliberate act of sabotage than negligence on the part of naïve drone pilots, who would be more likely to let their drones rise in daylight than for an entire night. Also the maximum flying time is not sufficient for continuous operation due to the power supply of the drones; apparently special precautions have been taken.



Whether tightened drone regulations can minimize such incidents -- corresponding voices are already loud -- would be questionable in this case. Because drone flights near airports are already forbidden, and DJI has pre-programmed such no-fly zones in the drones. If you absolutely want it, you can cancel the presets as far as we know.
