We have had a couple of enquiries lately about whether powered flight is allowed on Dartmoor. The simple answer is No. As there may be visitors to our area intending to fly on Dartmoor and use our website to search out the best sites to soar, John asked for a statement to be added to our home page to reinforce our constitution and the advice given in our Dartmoor site guide.
“It is worth reminding club members and others visiting Dartmoor to fly RC that whilst non-powered flight is allowed, any form of powered flight whether electric or combustion is banned by the Nation Park Bylaws. Due to this importance this bylaw it is written into our constitution and included into our guide on flying on Dartmoor.”
