The purpose of this consultation is to share the CAA’s proposal for the future of remote pilot (RP) competency in the specific category and provide an update on the progress of supporting policy workstreams. We are keen to receive feedback on our proposal from all UAS industry stakeholders.
The proposal covers a wide range of RPAS policy work including:
- Rulemaking to establish RAEs under an improved legal basis such as the UK Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, the Basic Regulation
- Establishing medical standards for RPs in the specific category
- Developing a framework for the future of RP competency
- Developing the supporting RP competency policy, AMC, and GM
Why your views matter
We recognise the impact of restructuring remote pilot competency training on Recognised Assessment Entities (RAEs) and the UK UAS industry.
The purpose of this consultation is to gather views from key stakeholder groups including RAEs, Remote Pilots, and Operators early in the policy development process.
