UK Announces Operation Foreverwing to enforce drone laws

| | ,

The UK has introduced its strategy to enforce drone laws, Operation Foreverwing. A CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) press release says that the new campaign is “aimed at clamping down on drone-related crimes, after 336 drone-related incidents were recorded during the last five months in the UK.”

The UK police will create dedicated drone teams across the country, tasked with enforcing the law by handing out fines and confiscating drones of drone users who break the rules. UK law now dictates that CAA registration is mandatory for operators of drones over 250 grams and all drones other than toys that are fitted with a camera. Failure to register leaves drone users at risk of penalties up to £1,000.
