CAA adopt EASA UAV system

A2 C of C

EASA regulations effective from the 31st December 2020, the CAA commercial system for UAV operators changes from that date with the PfCO is being replaced by a new system . The new rules will do away with the limitations and ambiguity around commercial and non-commercial drone operations, and will instead be based around the type of drone you have and where you fly it.

The majority of flying being carried out today I would say can be covered under The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) drone competency certificate whilst the more industrial type of flying will come under the GVC however unlike the PfCO, the GVC applies to all types of operations (whether for ‘Commercial’ purposes or not), but is based on the category of your aircraft, and where you are operating it. The GVC is a remote pilot competency certificate which provides a single qualification that is suitable for VLOS (Visual Line of Sight) operations within the Specific Category.
