Back in 2019, following disruptions and threat to security at Gatwick and Heathrow airports, drones hit the headlines resulting in the then-Prime Minister Theresa May’s call for consideration on stricter regulation and guidelines. 
Since that time, the use of drones has continued to grow exponentially and the CAA has placed tighter restrictions to support their safe use, including the need for users to register online and take a short test. 
This online market briefing, following up on our May 2019 introductory session with Gerry Corbett, will centre on the recent fundamental changes to UK Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) regulations, regulatory developments within Europe and provide some commentary on the wider impact of Brexit on the UAS landscape. Attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions to our speaker. 

Our speaker:
Gerry Corbett joined the CAA’s Safety and Airspace Regulation Group in June 2012, where his work is focussed on operational policy elements for all matters associated with the operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in UK airspace.  He also oversees the content of Civil Aviation Publication 722, the primary guidance document for Unmanned Aircraft System Operations in UK Airspace.  Immediately prior to this he undertook a similar role whilst working as a serving Royal Naval Air Traffic Control Officer on a 3 year secondment to the CAA’s Directorate of Airspace Policy (DAP).
