The UK’s new Drone and Model Aircraft Registration and Education Scheme is now live at Register-drones.caa.co.uk
There are two elements to the online system.
Anyone responsible for a drone or unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft)* weighing between 250g and 20kg will need to register as an operator. The cost for this will be £9 renewable annually.
* You can find more information on arrangements for approved operators and model flyers plus new exemptions at www.caa.co.uk/Consumers/Unmanned-aircraft/Our-role/Drone-and-model-aircraft-registration/
Anyone flying a drone or unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft) weighing between 250g and 20kg will need to take and pass an online education package. This is free and renewable every three years.
Both of these requirements become law on 30 November 2019.
