Rules and regulations are in place that pilots, air traffic controllers, aircraft engineers and others have to follow to ensure the highest levels of aviation safety.
If you think you have witnessed a breach of one of these rules or regulations then you can report it to us.
For all issues relating to drones or unmanned aircraft contact the Police on 101.
Note: When using FlightRadar24 as a position source, it should be noted that, as the FlightRadar24 website explains, the altitude displayed is not necessarily indicative of an aircraft's height above ground. FlightRadar24 is therefore not considered to be a reliable source of evidence of an aircraft's position.
Other examples we can investigate include aircraft flying without the correct approvals, companies or individuals charging for flights without the correct certificates, pilots flying without the correct licences and engineers undertaking unapproved work.
If you think you have witnessed a breach of aviation law then you can
make an online report.
If there is sufficient evidence (such as the aircraft registration) then we will investigate. Once we have conducted an initial review we will contact you to let you know what action we will be taking. Normally this will be within 20 working days.
