Restricted Airspace Order in Windsor

Alert message sent 11/01/2022 12:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Following a public consultation by Thames Valley Police and the Metropolitan Police Service and an application to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), a restricted airspace order has been approved for Windsor.

The order restricts the use of airspace up to 2,500ft within a 1.25 nautical mile radius around Windsor Castle and will come into effect from 27 January 2022.

Any flights within the restricted area will require authorisation.

Unless someone has an exemption or prior permission, anyone who breaches the restrictions faces prosecution.

This order is an additional method to keep the community living near to this iconic location safe.

Officers already carry out regular patrols in the area to provide reassurance along with a range of other security measures.

Further details of the order are available via the CAA and NATS websites.
