Deadline for UK drone registration nears

29 November marks the final date by which time UK drone pilots must register their details with the Civil Aviation Authority, or risk facing a fine of £1,000.

Anyone responsible for a drone which weighs more than 250g (8.8oz) must register it with the regulator online and pay an annual fee of £9.

The CAA estimates that there are 130,000 drone users in Britain, but so far only around 50,000 people have registered. The police warn that, apart from facing a hefty fine, people with unregistered drones also potentially face criminal charges if they fly them illegally or negligently.
