Re: Cosford 2019 Review

This is nothing to do with Cosford, but... Operating a small unmanned aircraft (SUA) has nothing whatsoever to do with owning it. The operator, remote pilot and the owner can be 3 entirely separate people, or the owner / operator can be companies. Provided an operator of over 18 is involved, anyone ...

No, because nobody would pass that so even the Gub'mint know that would be pointless.

It will as I believe be along the lines of...

What is the height limit for flying your drone?
a. 400ft
b. 12 miles
c. 10ft

Re: new registration rebellion

Representatives of the UK Model Flying Associations met with the CAA yesterday afternoon (29th May 2019). The meeting was constructive, but without any real breakthrough to report at this stage.

Re: new registration rebellion

Yes, just read 'UK Model Associations' where it says 'BMFA'! The message is the same though, if you've not already responded to the consultation, emailed Baroness Vere, your MP & the CEO of the CAA pelase do. Several have asked for a template letter to make the job easier. We have deliberately n...

Re: new registration rebellion

None of the registration requirements apply to specific airframes, or the ownership of specific airframes. The registration is required only for the operator, be that a person or a company. The required registration information is name, address & DoB, and that's about it. Al of these requirement...

Re: 2019 Air Navigation order Update - Potentially Important!

John, Outside the 'blue' areas in the online map, you can fly models under 7kg as before, with no height limit as an LMA member with the permission we have from the CAA. Models 7-20kg are still limited to 400ft, but can be flown in all classes of airspace as long as outside the blue bit on the map a...
