To unlock a restricted area for commercial pay-as-you-fly cover, all you need to do is:
- On the map screen, enter the location you're looking to fly in.
- Tap on the black bar across the bottom of the screen.
- We'll ask you to confirm if you have the relevant permissions in place.
- Once confirmed, you'll be able to purchase your policy.
*Please Note: Any claim where the correct permissions have not been granted could result in the claim being rejected
The CAA operates a permissions and exemptions scheme which is designed to enable operations beyond the normal bounds of the regulations laid down within the Air Navigation Order (ANO).
You will only be granted a permission or exemption provided that the CAA is satisfied that this can be achieved in a safe manner. More information on this can be found here.
For certain areas (for example if you are close to a prison), you may also need written permission from the owner/organisation which runs the structure that is causing the restriction.
