Important information relating to registration of model flyers in the UK.

From the East Anglia Area Delegate to Council – Paul Hoey
Club committees and members will be well aware of the implications arising out European and UK proposals to regulate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The UK Civil Aviation Authority on 25 April, 2019 lunched a consultation regarding on proposed fees to be levied on operators of UAVs which include model flyers to cover the costs of registration.
The BMFA has released more information and a link to the consultation.
The Area Committee will be discussing our response at the Area meeting on 9 May and will share this with clubs. The consultation closes on 7 June and we would encourage your club and members to consider submitting a measured and well argued response to the consultation.
