The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) welcomes today's announcement by the Government that the UK's drone rules will be updated. The CAA supports the safe development of drones in the UK as they can bring many benefits, but to achieve those we need everyone flying a drone now to do so safely.

Remember that you should never fly your drone above 400ft, should always keep it in your line of sight, and stay well away from airports, airfields and other aircraft.
