CAA updates guidance on drone operations in UK airspace

The U.K. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) published an updated version of its guidance document “Unmanned Aircraft System Operations in UK Airspace” (CAP722).

Unmanned Aircraft System Operations in UK Airspace – Guidance, is intended to assist those who are involved in all aspects of the development of drones/UAS to identify the route to certification, outline the methods by which permission for aerial work may be obtained and ensure that all requirements are met by the UAS industry. The document highlights the safety requirements that have to be met before a UAS is allowed to operate in the UK.
