Military low flying: avoidance policy

Guidance for event organisers and members of the public about MOD policy on avoidance requests for low flying military aircraft.



This guidance should be read before submitting an avoidance request for low flying military aircraft. If once you have read the policy you still wish to apply for a Request low flying to be temporarily stopped in your area.

For information about why low flying takes place visit: Military low flying or read our Military low flying: the essential facts leaflet.

We also publish a horse riders guide that explains the impact of military helicopter low flying and provides safety advice for horse riders.
