Air Navigation Order and Regulation of Model Aircraft 2019

 Under the new Air Navigation regulations that came into force on November 2019 all flyers of model aircraft over 250 gms must be registered with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) either through the CAA direct or via the British Model Flying Association (BMFA).

 Model flyers must be over 13 years old and if under 18 years then a responsible adult must be registered as the Operator and the child will become the Flyer. Over 18 years then you will be required to be registered with either the CAA or via the BMFA. You will take a simple test with regards to safety and then pay £9.00 to receive your Operator ID and Flyer ID.

 This is a legal requirement and after 30th January 2020 flying anything other than a balloon or kite without an ID will render you liable to legal proceedings and fines.

 More details can be found on the CAA website here: https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/individual

You also need to read the CAA Privacy notice with regards to the data they collect and process. https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/privacy-notice#

 

Why has this legislation come about?

After over 100 years of safe flying of model aircraft tight controls have been brought into law and overseen by the CAA who are responsible for the UK's busy airspace. This law was brought in by Parliament due to a small minority of multi-rotor (drones) users flying near or at Airports or over large scale public events without authority and causing damage, injuries to members of the public or suspension of full size aircraft flights, the last straw of course was Gatwick Christmas .2018
