CAA Call For Input

Personally I rely heavily on our Open Category infographic ( to explain the rules to those who ask me questions. The infographic does its job well, but does the fact I need to use that suggest that the rules themselves are too complex? (Or do the CAA just need to use our infographic widely!)

Perhaps, rather than A1, A2, A3, something like ‘Basic’,‘Advanced’ or ‘Low risk’, ‘High risk’ might be easier to understand? What do you all think?

Does diverging from the EU rules matter, since there is no agreement with the EU to allow us to fly our drones there anyhow? Unless there is a plan to implement a bilateral agreement to allow that, I can’t see a good reason to continuing to be aligned with Brussels with our drone rules.
