Guidance on drone use (Drones or Small Unmanned Aircraft)

The rules governing the use of drones changed with effect from 31st December 2020 and have been harmonised across the entire EU, including the UK. Drones must be operated in accordance with the latest Drone Code.

The current distinction between commercial and non-commercial use has been abolished. Instead, the rules which apply to the use of a drone are determined by a new system of drone categorisation based on weight and capacity, including whether it is equipped with a camera. Clearly in capturing data, drone users remain subject to data protection laws.

The main changes are set out here. A set of factsheets are available here to explain how flying will be affected.
