Information on the latest guidance and developments relating to drones
The DfT will also be changing UK regulations so that European Union (EU) class marks on drones will not be recognised in the UK after 1 January 2023. Drones with EU class marks will still be able to be flown in the UK after that date in the Open and Specific categories
Major and unexpected u-turn there that drastically restricts potential drone usage rights. No sooner than we start to see drones get class marks than the rules get changed to ignore them.
Means realistically anything over 250g is restricted to A2/A3 regardless of markings so 150m (or 50m with A2CoC) from people.
This is a major change that wasnt even discussed at any stage.
