Correction: This video emphasizes drones, however, any remote controlled hobby aircraft is also applicable for the registration (Model Helicopters, planes etc)
Check out my other videos as well and please sub and like (costs you nothing)
Note: Do check the CAAS Website for the latest news and schedules of major events before flying your drone
LATEST: I mentioned the requirement for a “UAV Pilot License” for anyone flying an unmanned aircraft (UA) above 1.5kg or below 7kg. This is inaccurate.
Under the UA Pilot Competency Framework, there are two different types of instruments, or requirements, UA Pilot License (UAPL) and the UA Basic Training Certificate (UABTC).
While the UAPL will require you to sit for a theory and practical exam, the UABTC is a 2 hour e-learning that can be completed at home. You will need either of these depending on the weight of your aircraft and the purpose of flight.
Required for non-educational/non-recreational (incl. commercial) purposes for UA of all weights
Required for educational and recreational purposes for UA exceeding 7kg.
Required for educational and recreational purposes for UA more than 1.5kg but not exceeding 7kg.
This means that if you are flying a UA up to 1.5kg for educational and recreational purposes, the above will not apply. The minimum age to apply for a UAPL and UABTC is 16.
The above requirements will be effective 1 Feb 2021.
