UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

As part of the overall security arrangements following the death of Her Majesty The Queen, the Secretary of State for Transport has introduced Restriction of Flying Regulations under Article 239 of the Air Navigation Order 2016.

Three restrictions have been published, Balmoral Castle to Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, central London, and central London and Windsor.

All restrictions also apply to drones. 

Any non-standard flight (NSF) or enhanced non–standard flight (ENSF) clearances within the London restriction, are withdrawn for the duration. 

You can download the Briefing Sheets from this page. These are formally published by NATS on the UK AIS Internet Briefing System at www.nats.aero/ais
