SAA Registration Process

 

 To allow the SAA to update their membership database and register all members with the CAA we need to gather new information and our member’s permission for which you will find a new form on the SAA "register drones" page. The new registration form is to collect three things,

 

  • An agreement from individual members that they wish the SAA to register them with the CAA by returning the completed form to the SAA Membership Secretary.

 

  • To agree to the new Terms, Conditions and Privacy Notice (see links below).

  • To gather the correct information to align our membership records and to be able to register members.

Further guidance and information will be issued through your local club.

 Drone Registration Education System

 

It’s been quite an eventful month since the DRES went live and everyone has been eager to understand what they should do to remain flying. All the model associations have been issuing their interpretation of the guidance and advising their members. The processes are still not 100% clear, however our advice is,

 

  • Make sure you have an achievement award or sit the on line test by 30th Nov 2019.
  • Pay your £9.00 to the SAA or direct if you use the DRES on line.
  • Complete the SAA Registration form provided to the club by the SAA and return this to the SAA Membership Secretary by 10th Jan 2020.
  • Fly legally - Please note that to be insured you must fly lawfully for this you should register with the CAA. No Operator ID or (Flying ID or copy of the General Exemption plus an achievement award) may mean no insurance.
  • Label your aircraft once you have your Operator ID.
  • Passing the DRES/Drone test does not circumvent the SAA achievement scheme e.g. Bronze.
  • Clubs should ensure members are registered and flying safely at all times, this includes ensuring membership cards are available when intending to fly as well as operator and flyer registration.

 

Please also note: Aircraft Safety: Endangering the safety of an aircraft could result in a five-year prison sentence. Failure to comply: could result in a fixed penalty notice or prosecution if challenged by the Police should they suspect you of flying unlawfully.
