    The CAA have issued a notice indicating that piston-engined aircraft CAN fly in the no-fly zones.

    http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/ATSIN0184.pdf
    5.2 ATC and FIS Providers should not offer a service within a NFZ unless the pilot is operating under VFR and the aircraft is a glider, balloon or piston powered aircraft and not operating for the purpose of public transport.1 This restriction does not apply to operational emergency services flights (e.g. Air Ambulance).
    ATC and FIS Providers may also provide a service to an aircraft in the above categories within controlled airspace that is:
    • operating under VFR within Class D airspace;
    • operating under Special VFR in other controlled airspace provided that it is the only aircraft in that airspace block.
    In the event of an aircraft inadvertently entering a NFZ, assistance to enable a pilot to exit such a volume of airspace
    (emphasis mine)

    over in holland this week and was told that the wording of the ban to flying was first issued as a ban to take off from any dutch airfield and there were the usual height limit figures for the affected airspace. in this case from sea level upwards. it was therefore possible to fly from lelystadt as this airfield has a minus height amsl.
