UK CAA – New Legally Binding Drone Regulations

7 Dec 2022

It’s the UK’s turn to tighten the thumbscrews on drone pilots. The CAA have today released a new Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) document for the rules and procedures for the operations of unmanned aircraft. It should be noted that everything in the document is law that must be complied with by a drone pilot. This means that you can potentially end up facing court and having a criminal record if you get caught being in non-compliance of any of the rules.
