New Drone flying rules

Sep 16, 2021 | 0 comments

In May 2021 the law relating to Drone flying in the UK changed again. The current guidance is CAP722 relating to Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations in UK Airspace published by the Civil Aviation Authority. The CAA issued further regulations on 13th May 2021 following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. This follows a trend of continuing regulation of drones. Essentially the CAA’s approach is that the higher the risk involved in a drone flight the more restrictions apply.
