Low flying aircraft and drones

Low Flying Aircrafts

The Wye Valley, particularly between Monmouth and Chepstow has long been one the areas used by the military for low-level flying training, both by helicopters and fixed wing aircraft and it is essential that this type of training takes place.

The rules and regulations for this activity are laid down by the Ministry of Defence (MoD); however if you have a genuine complaint please see the .gov.uk website which explains what is permitted and how to register an objection.


The use of drones is regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). This page on the Civil Aviation Authority website explains the rules of use and how to complain.
