Looking for drone laws by U.S. state or by country? While additional drone regulations exist for a wide range of topics, including equipment on board, purpose of flight, airworthiness, and more, our goal with this resource is to focus on safe and legal piloting of UAVs around the world.

Laws will restrict drones from flying above 400 feet and within 1 kilometre of airport boundaries. The new laws will also require owners of drones weighing 250 grams or more to register with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and for drone pilots to take an online safety test to ensure the UK’s skies are

Drone technology is constantly improving, making the machines better, cheaper and more desirable.

  Voters Will 'Go Bananas' At £40bn Brexit Divorce Bill, Warns Tory MP The public will “go bananas” if the government agrees to pay the European Union a £40bn divorce bill, a senior Tory MP has warned. Robert Halfon, a former vice-chairman of the Conservative Party, said voters would not understand such a large sum of money being handed over to Brussels.The EU has demanded the UK agrees to settle its financial commitments before Brexit negotiations can move on to any future trade relationship.According to The Financial Times, May is prepared to increase her initial bid of £2bn to €38bn. However that sum is still short of the £53bn demanded by Brussels.

New drone owners have been warned about the risks of flying the devices as soon as they unwrap them this Christmas .

These are drone laws that apply to every state in the U.S., including California, and were created by the federal government. This law provides immunity for first responders who damage a UAS that was interfering with the first responder while he or she was providing emergency services.

National Police Chiefs' Council lead for criminal misuse of drones, Assistant Chief Constable Serena Kennedy said: "Police forces are aware of the ever increasing use of drones by members of the public and we are working with all relevant partners to understand the threats that this new technology can pose when used irresponsibly or illegally.

"Do not take this lightly - if you use a drone to invade people's privacy or engage in disruptive behaviour, you could face serious criminal charges."

Happy Christmas! It’s just what you’ve always wanted. But now, make sure you know the drone flight rules. Police are warning new drone owners to make sure they are up to speed on flying guidelines and rules before taking to the air.

Be sure to choose 4K (2160p) to get the best quality. It's illegal to fly within National Parks so I went just outside of the park to find some areas to fly. I didnt have a lot of time but this is some of the better footage.

Banning drones from flying near airports or above 400ft could also form part of the new regulations.

Currently, drones weighing more than 7kg can't be flown above 400ft, and they must always be in the pilot's line of sight.

Most of the drone incidents reported by pilots are made at flight level - that's around 5,000 ft. But some have even been reported at up to 35,000ft.

In 2014 there were only six incidents but in 2015 that rose to 29. Last year there were 71 reports and in the first eight months of this year, there have already been 81.

However, the Government does not want to ban drones completely.

Friday, December 28, 2018. Police on Tuesday warned new owners of drones to obey the law after Gatwick Airport, the second-largest airport in Britain, faced days of closure on account of drone sightings. About 150,000 travellers have had their plans affected.

On Monday a scheme will be launched to support the research and development of drone technology for uses in industry, logistics and healthcare.

Aviation minister Baroness Sugg said: "Drones have great potential and we want to do everything possible to harness the benefits of this technology as it develops.

"But if we are to realise the full potential of this incredibly exciting technology, we have to take steps to stop illegal use of these devices and address safety and privacy concerns.

"These new laws strike a balance, to allow the vast majority of drone users to continue flying safely and responsibly, while also paving the way for drone technology to revolutionise businesses and public services."

The draft drone bill will be published for consultation and introduce secondary legislation amendments in spring 2018.
