To unlock a restricted area for commercial pay-as-you-fly cover, all you need to do is:

  1. On the map screen, enter the location you're looking to fly in.
  2. Tap on the black bar across the bottom of the screen. 
  3. We'll ask you to confirm if you have the relevant permissions in place.
  4. 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.
