This may have constitutional implications. Aviation is not delegated to the Scottish Parliament. The drone most be flown to UK CAA rules, which have been issued.
To charge someone under other rules might be construed as extending Scottish Authority unconstitutionally.
(The CAA Rules would be interpreted as Scottish Law.)

This is deja vu all over again. As noted, we in the US of A went thru this UAV registration and licensing several years ago. We're going through the motions of regulating a hobby...

I was chasing down info on the drone doing resupply trials on the Prince of Wales and found this - a new UK Ofcom decision to introduce a new BVLOS UAS operator licence. (Dated 16 Dec 2022)

Legally limited to the UK, obviously, but assuming Starlink or some other satphone constellation presumably also usable anywhere in international airspace.

ORAC is online now
