Registration and remote pilot competency requirements will come into
force in November 2019. All the details of the scheme will be published nearer
the time of its introduction.
6 September 2018 – We have just
issued a General Permission
(ORS4 No. 1279) which corrects an unintended consequence
within the 2018 amendment to the Air Navigation Order. This reinstates
the ability for small UAS (with a mass greater than 7kg) to be flown above
400ft within controlled airspace or aerodrome traffic zones if permitted to do
so by ATC.
26 July 2018 - We have just issued a revised FPV General Exemption (ORS4 No. 1273) which replaces the previous one (ORS4 No. 1226) on Monday 30 July 2018. The main change is a reduction in the permitted maximum height from 1000 ft to 400 ft, to tie in with the Air Navigation (Amendment) Order 2018 which also takes effect on 30 July 2018.
26 July 2018 - The Department for Transport has published a consultation containing 'policy proposals for safer use of drones plus powers to police for enforcement'. The consultation runs for just over seven weeks and closes at 23:45 on 17 September 2018.
July 2018 - We have published guidance for small unmanned aircraft users with an outline of the revised regulations as they now appear in law; to provide guidance on the effects of the changes; and how they will be interpreted by the CAA.
February 2018 - EASA has just published its ‘Opinion’
(final draft) on
the proposed EU UAS regulations, which follows on from the consultation that was
conducted last year.
January 2018 - The CAA has published an assessment of the drone safety risk.
