Drone and model aircraft

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) governs UK airspace and their Drone and Model Aircraft Code explains everything you need to know about flying a drone or model aircraft safely and legally in the UK.

The Police are the enforcement authority and may take action against the operator, the remote pilot or both if they are found to have broken the law. So, please check that you are complying with all legal requirements before you fly your drone.

If you have any concerns about unmanned aircraft being used in your area, contact your local police on 101.
