    What is the situation with this? A warning came up on my display when preparing to take off yesterday. It advised caution but didn't warn me not to fly.

    I'm SW London. I was about 6 miles, as crow flies, from Heathrow.

    No flying in category A C D and E without permission from ATS and ATC.
    F and G only if requested. CAP 393 article 166.

    I get the category D popup, on every single flight, regardless of where lifting off. Even on my friends farm, on private land.
