UK CAA REGULATIONS

With effect from 31st December 2020, the UK CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) published updated regulations relating to the use of Drones/UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) in UK airspace.

Although there no substantive changes to the overall requirements for Drone operators to be registered and for individual users to have taken and passed the CAA online education package, you should be aware of the detailed various changes, should they impact any of your current or future plans regarding Drone usage.
