Are FPV UK members exempt from the Drone Registration scheme?
No. Every operator of an unmanned aircraft must register themselves with the CAA. This is made super easy for you with our automatic CAA link. You just need to press the ‘Add CAA Registration/ Renewal‘ button in your account and we will automatically register you with the CAA, and renew your Operator ID with the CAA before it expires. Full details are in the FPV UK handbook.
Where do I get my Flyer ID?
If you have passed the FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law you do not have to obtain a Flyer ID when flying under our Article 16 Operational Authorisation. Carrying your membership certificate showing you have the Certificate of Competency: Drone Law, or your plastic FPV UK membership card showing the same, will suffice.
