FPV UK gets new Article 16 OA

CAA issues 6th 12 month Article 16 Operational Authorisation

CAA Article 16

The CAA has today issued FPV UK with its sixth Article 16 Operational Authorisation for drone and model aircraft flying.

This version is valid from today 19/12/2023, until the end of next year – 31/12/2024.

There are no significant changes to report – this is a continuation of the Article 16 provisions for our members. This means our more than 8,000 members can continue to fly their drones and model aircraft with the extra freedoms that Article 16 offers.

As always, you can access the latest version of the FPV UK Article 16 Operational Authorisation at article16.fpv.uk

The new Article 16 Operational Authorisation accompanies a new version of the FPV UK handbook. v1.4 is available at handbook.fpv.uk A new version of the FPV UK Open Category infographic is also available at fpv.uk/openinfog

There are also updated questions for the FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law which keeps them up to date. You can take the FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law, and get a free CAA Flyer ID, in your FPV UK account at members.fpvuk.org
