London 2012 Airspace restrictions

2012Logo LondonOlympicsAs part of the security programme for the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games, the airspace over London and other Games venues will be subject to restrictions this summer.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has full details of the restrictions on its website:


You can download the leaflet ‘London 2012 Airspace Guide’ which contains all the necessary information to adhere to the restrictions or to avoid the zone for the duration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.


The UK Government has declared repeatedly that it takes the threat of a rogue aircraft very seriously and will take measures to counter unauthorised flights within the restricted zones. The CAA leaflet is easy to understand and will help you adhere to the temporary rules during the Olympics this year.
