The 5th of November sparks (see what I did? Two puns in one!) a new era in the UK for drone users.
Today was the day you could register to be a drone “pilot” and the 30th of November is the day you must have done it by or you are breaking a new aviation “law”.
What is it? Well it simply registers every drone pilot and or flyer of drones and states that you are not allowed to fly unless you have completed an online test and as a drone owner you need to pay a sort of annual fee/tax of £9 to own an fly.
Why? To introduce some sort of structure into the growing market and give authorities the ability to build a picture of drone users demographically and to maybe try and root out people who are causing a stir at airports.
These rules are new to the UK but have been in place in countries like Canada for some months now.
Anyway – watch my video or click on some links if you are interested.
