How did I get on… Well its the 5th Nov and when I tried to register on the registration page it said to ‘bookmark this registration page and come back on the 5th’ . There’s no link to click, just a page saying to come back on the 5th. What a farce already. Even ‘drone-safe’ are saying the registration is now live, clearly it’s not.
It was even on the BBC news Web page. Breakfast news is just repeating what is on the BBC Web. It’s a pity the BBC haven’t checked the CAA site whether you can actually register. But the BBC are another department of government so I don’t suppose they would do anything such as check facts. They are too busy telling the population what they should do and what’s good for them.
Just heard Radio 4’s Today programme 8.00 news. Which mebtions drone registration starts today, up to £1000 fine for not registering and the purpose is ro prevent the chaos caused by dones at Gatwick happening again. BALPAreported as saying the measure desperately needed to avoid serious collision between drone and aitcraft.
Somewhat sensationalist reporting.
And I have been trying the website on and off since midnight with no joy.
Because of the General Election, the closing date for the petition you signed has changed. All petitions now have to close at 00:01am on 6 November. This is because Parliament will be dissolved, which means all parliamentary business – including petitions – will come to an end until after the election. This means the petitions site will be closed and people will not be able to start or sign petitions.
We’re sorry we weren’t able to give you more notice that this would happen.
The petition will be available for people to read on the site even though it will be closed for signatures. This petition won’t be reopened after the election.
Just registered charged £9 (For 1 Year)
Received email which states my operator ID Expires on 05/11/2020 this is a rip off as we don’t have to register until 30th November so 25 DAYS LOST !
