Dear club members,
As you are no doubt aware, the CAA are currently in the process of building a new online system to enable drone operators to register themselves with the CAA later this year.
By November this year drone operators will not only need to be registered with CAA but they will also be required to pass an online competency test.
As part of this registration-building process, the CAA need to speak directly to drone operators in order to test designs, concepts and system prototypes of their proposed service to ensure the service they are building works for actual drone users, i.e. All of us.
We are pleased to announce that the CAA will be directly asking Grey Arrows Drone Club members for their help with this testing process.
It is in all our interests to make sure the system the CAA builds both works and succeeds. We therefore invite you all to participate in their upcoming requests for participation, which they will post here on our forum.
The Grey Arrows Drone Club continues to promote safe flying and to reinforce their backing of the current Drone Code, we are now listed as an official supporter on Drone code - Dronesafe
Please be advised that the @CAA_User_Research account is not here to answer direct questions and at times the account will not be monitored. With this in mind, please continue to field any questions to the wider GADC community and where possible we will pose any unanswered questions directly to the CAA through our existing channels.
Thank you in advance for your support of this process.
