New laws for drones above 250g

If you are responsible for, or fly, a drone that weighs more than 250g (just over eight ounces), you will now have to register or face a fine of up to £1000 under new CAA regulations. Specifically:

  • anyone who will fly must pass a theory test to get a flyer ID
  • the person that’s responsible for the drone or model aircraft must register to get an operator ID

Children and adults wanting to fly the gadgets from November 30, 2019, will have to take the test to show they can do so “safely and legally”.
