Drones: amendments to the Air Navigation Order 2016

On 30 May 2018, the UK government published amendments to the Air Navigation Order 2016 (ANO) regarding small unmanned aircraft (SUA), colloquially referred to as drones.

Among changes to be brought in are height restrictions on smaller drones which were previously exempt, while compulsory registration and demonstrations of competency are being introduced for all those operating drones.

We consider the practical impact of the changes in our report 'Drones: amendments to the Air Navigation Order 2016'. Click on the link below to download the report.
