Registration requirements for Unmanned Aircraft

Unmanned aircraft with an operating mass in excess of 20 kg are required to be registered unless they are flying under an exemption or under the provisions of a 'B Conditions' approval issued to an organisation under BCAR A8-9. Unmanned aircraft with an operating mass of more than 150 kg must be registered with the CAA. Once the CAA has processed the application, the aircraft will be issued with a registration ID consisting of five characters starting 'G-' (e.g. G-ABCD) and the details will be entered into the aircraft register. The registration must be displayed permanently on the aircraft in accordance with Part 3 of Schedule 3 to the ANO 2009.
