You must have evidence of a recognised competency when you fly. You can easily meet this requirement if:
- You have an existing BMFA Achievement that you passed before 1st January 2021
- You hold a valid BMFA Registration Competency Certificate which can be completed via this website (https://rcc.bmfa.uk/rcc) .
- You take the CAA’s Online test and receive a CAA Flyer ID (https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/individual) or hold another CAA recognised competency.
Please note that it is still a requirement to have a valid Operator ID on your aircraft.
