Registration

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 (or under 250g if it has a camera and isn’t a toy) 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 (or under 250g if it has a camera and isn’t a toy) 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.
