As the adoption of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) continues to expand, there is a pressing need for regulations that effectively manage safety and security risks while addressing the requirements of UAS users. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has identified avenues for enhancing UAS regulations, which encompass streamlining operational criteria classifications and incorporating product specifications to ensure that UAS are inherently safe and secure in their design.
This invitation for input aims to gather insights from the UAS community regarding potential enhancements to UAS regulations, with the objective of ensuring their relevance in the evolving landscape. The feedback received from this process, in conjunction with other forms of evidence and analysis, will play a crucial role in shaping a forthcoming consultation on the proposed adjustments that will be implemented.
There are 19 questions where feedback is requested that cover 15 opportunities identified by the CAA.
All responses to this Call for Input must be submitted by September 7th, 2023 using the feedback form on the CAA website.
