Register an organisation to use drones or model aircraft
Use this service to register your organisation for an operator ID if it’s responsible for drones or model aircraft.
Examples of organisations that may need to register include: businesses, schools, colleges, universities, voluntary organisations, clubs and charities.
The person who registers must be authorised to be the accountable manager for drones and model aircraft in your organisation.
Labelling your drone or model aircraft
You must label your drones and model aircraft with your operator ID.
You can use the same operator ID for all your drones and model aircraft.
Check that people who fly your drones and model aircraft have a flyer ID
You must only allow people with a valid flyer ID to fly your organisation’s drones or model aircraft. This will show they’ve passed the theory test on flying safely and legally.
Holders of permissions and other flying exemptions
You’ll still need to register even if you already have:
- an existing permission or exemption from the Civil Aviation Authority (the permission that allows commercial operations is sometimes referred to as a PfCO)
- any relevant flight permission or exemption from any other organisation, such as an airport
