Drone registration consultation
To enable us to build a drone registration service that meets drone user requirements we are running a consultation on how people currently use drones. To help us with this please fill out our survey at https://sparck.typeform.com/to/mlsBqT
We’re also running workshops in London over the next few weeks where we will be looking to gain a deeper understanding of what is needed for the service. If you are available to come along please sign up on at https://doodle.com/poll/t3mdwp8vy95p3wau
If you can’t make these sessions, but are interested in helping us build this service, please email: Droneregistration@caa.co.uk

DJI battery update
After reviewing evidence from DJI, we are in a place to remove some of the current restrictions if an operator can successfully apply the DJI workaround (and verify this). We do ask that all operators still proceed with caution and immediately return to home or hover if the device doesn’t behave as expected. We continue to monitor this issue daily, working with DJI and reviewing operator feedback. We welcome any thing further from operators on this matter.
