The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) recently published its consultation on the proposed charge to cover the cost of running the upcoming Unmanned Aircraft Operator Registration and Education Scheme. The proposed charge balances keeping the charge for registration as low as possible with ensuring that the scheme funds itself. Consultation responses will inform the CAA’s final decision on the charge, which will be taken in July 2019.
