The CAA tend to use Section 12 of the FOIA to deflect requests made on the topic of the Gatwick drone. The DfT have answered an FOIA detailing some of the email titles that the CAA were involved in so you may want to refer to those to target your request.

DfT emails reveal that the CAA had a single point of contact for the Gatwick comms as such there really is no credibility behind a section 12 rejection so if you encounter this you'd be well advised to seek an internal review then complain to the ICO if your request is denied.
