DRONE RESTRICTIONS AND SAFETY DURING THE CAYMAN ISLANDS AIR SHOW

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) would like to advise the public of the restrictions on flying small unmanned aircraft (also known as drones or unmanned aerial vehicles) during the Cayman Islands Air Show in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.

The Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) has restricted the airspace surrounding the event in accordance with the provisions of Article 68 (1)(a) of the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order 2013, as amended as per follows:

Grand Cayman, 2nd and 3rd December, 7:00am – 5:00pm:

The flight of all aircraft, including small unmanned aircraft (SUA), also known as Drones, is prohibited within 3 (three) nautical miles of the Air Show, offshore at Seven Mile Public Beach from surface to 8000 ft above mean sea level.

Cayman Brac, 4th December, 11:00am – 2:00pm:

The flight of all aircraft, including small unmanned aircraft (SUA), also known as Drones, is prohibited within 3 (three) nautical miles of the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport, Cayman Brac from surface to 8000 ft above mean sea level.

For the avoidance of doubt, the restriction applies to both approved commercial SUA/Drone operators and recreational enthusiasts unless specifically approved for this event by the CAACI.

Drone detection systems will be deployed to protect the Air Show airspace and the CAACI is collaborating with the RCIPS to ensure that the restricted airspace is appropriately policed.
