    Question about public parks (UK)

    Hi, I have just bought a Mavic Mini 2 and passed the CAA flyer ID even though it's not a requirement yet for sub 250g drones. I was under the impression that you can fly drones over public parks (just for test actually) as they are not built up areas, however the CAA guide says recreational...

    CAA Release CAP1789: Is this the death of PFCO in UK?

    CAA have published #CAP1789. It's the EU Drone regulation package to be adopted by all member states in July 2020. This is a major shift on focus from segregated Commercial/recreational classed #Drone flights in the UK, to one class of "remote pilots". This means you will no longer need a #PFCO...

    Drone near miss 'down to providence' OK, seems sensible so far...could be a drone... Lets read further:- Right OK, so its a 1 metre by half a metre "drone" cruising along at 6,000ft AGL. Yeah plausible. But as per usual the Airprox board and CAA trot out soundbites without ever seriously...

    The company I work for has run a Phantom 2 for a few years, and I duly qualified with the CAA for commercial work.
