Consultation description

Consultation proposing policies for drone use and enforcement. The proposed policies include:

  • the minimum age requirement for operators for small unmanned aircraft
  • whether the 1km flight restriction around protected aerodromes is sufficient
  • a proposal to mandate and regulate a Flight Information and Notification System (FINS) or just regulate the FINS
  • the powers required by enforcement bodies in order to properly police drone use and penalise incorrect use, including the possible use of fixed penalty notices
  • counter drone technology system proposals

The proposals build on the legislation made by the Benefits of drones to the UK economy and The Air Navigation (Amendment) Order 2018.
