With immediate effect, all drone flights in the Ruperts and Jamestown areas have been restricted. This is in support of the planned helicopter operations that are to be conducted by the rockfall protection project.
The restriction applies from Monday 30 March 2020 to Friday 26 June 2020 inclusive, Mondays to Fridays, at all hours.
Should drone users wish to fly in the Ruperts or Jamestown areas between these two dates, permission from St Helena Airport will need to be sought prior to flights commencing.
It should be noted that these restrictions are in addition to the usual drone flying restrictions in place over the main areas of Jamestown.
