Drone users face jail if they 'recklessly endanger an aircraft in flight'
Civil Aviation Authority issues ‘drone code’ after several near misses when drones buzzed passenger jets using British airports
Drone pilots who “buzz” passenger jets as they take off and land at British airports have been warned they face jail if caught as the number of companies and unlicensed individuals making use of the relatively low cost flight technology continues to grow.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which issued the warning on Wednesday, has recorded six serious incidents in the past year when drones came within 20ft of airliners at airports around the country including Heathrow.
Drone users must understand … they are entering one of the busiest areas of airspace in the world
