1 The Glastonbury Festival, and preparation for it, will take place during the period 18-26 June 2017. A large gathering of persons is expected and, therefore, the Secretary of State for Transport has decided that it is necessary in the interests of public safety to introduce Restriction of Flying Regulations under article 239 of the Air Navigation Order 2016.
2 Subject to paragraph 3 between 0700 (UTC) on 18 June and 2300 hours (UTC) on 26 June 2017, no aircraft is to fly below 3,100 ft amsl within the area bounded by a circle having a radius of 2.5 nm whose centre is at 510921N 0023510W
3 Paragraph 2 does not apply to any aircraft flying:
(a) in the service of the National Police Air Service;
(b) in the service of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service;
(c) with the permission of the Chief Officer of Police for Avon and Somerset who may be contacted on telephone number 01179-365138; or
(d) making an approach to RNAS Yeovilton at an altitude of not less than 2,000 ft amsl whilst under the control of the Air Traffic Control Unit at RNAS Yeovilton.
4 In relation to paragraphs 2 and 3, the term ‘aircraft’ includes aircraft as classified by Part 1 of Schedule 4 to the Air Navigation Order 2016. It also includes, by virtue of article 23 of that Order, any small balloon, any kite weighing not more than two kilograms, any small unmanned aircraft and any parachute including a parascending parachute.
5 The times mentioned in paragraph 2 are Universal Co-ordinated Time (UTC), which is one hour behind British Summer Time.
