Registration mandatory from: 30 November 2019
The UKs new Drone and Model Aircraft Registration and Education Service is now live.
There are two elements to the online system:
1. Anyone responsible for a drone or unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft) weighing between 250g and 20kg needs to register as an operator. The cost for this is 9 renewable annually.
2. Anyone flying a drone or unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft) weighing between 250g and 20kg must take and pass an online education package. This is free and renewable every three years.
Both of these requirements became law on 30 November 2019.
You must also label any drones and model aircraft you are responsible for with your operator ID.
