***IMPORTANT NEWS FOR DRONE USE IN THE UK***

All drones weighing 250g to 20kg will require mandatory registration from the 30th Nov 2019. 

The system will go live on the 5th November and will cost £9. Users will be required to take an online test to prove competence. 
Commercial operators will be exempt from this test, if they hold a PFCO or equivalent qualification / permission from the CAA. 

Failure to register your drone after this date could land you with a fine or criminal prosecution if you decide to fly it.

Operators are still required to gain a Permission For Commercial Operations (PFCO) to use a drone for commercial purposes, this is separate to drone registration.
