Kirkstall Abbey

First it’s always wise to fire up the UAV forecast app to ensure conditions are favourable.

After this I consulted Google maps and drew a line from Leeds Bradford Airport to Kirkstall Abbey using the measure distance ruler and noticed that it was within the restricted D airspace 5 mile radius

I called the airport and advised them of when I was flying, for how long and at what height. I was reliably informed that  one passenger flight that was likely to be in the area at the same time as me, and provided I stay at a reasonable altitude there shouldn’t be any issues. Looking at my flight log I went no higher than 104ft for the duration of my flight which was roughly the same height as the Abbey Itself
