Recently FPV UK’s Chief Executive Simon Dale and the UAVHUB Blueskies Dronecast guys got together for a chat for their Podcast. The main subject of discussion was the FPV UK Drone Article 16 Operational Authorisation.
The UAVHUB team quizzed Simon on how the Article 16 operational authorisation came about, what exactly it allows our members to do, how it compares with the Open Catergory drone rules. And also how the permissions FPV UK members have under the A16 OA compare with A2 CofC certificate of competency holders.
Give it a watch watch on YouTube here or you can also find it as a podcast where you usually get your Podcasts from. Just search for Blueskies Dronecast episode 13.
The FPV UK Drone Article 16 Operational Authorisation is a special CAA authorisation for our members. It allows you to to fly your drones and model aircraft in more places, closer to uninvolved people, and (for non-multirotors) higher, than you could under the normal Open Category rules.
