Small Unmanned Aircraft: Special Operations – Future Requirement for a Safety Case Assessment

caalogo

The purpose of this Information Notice is to inform operators of civil Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) and Small Unmanned Surveillance Aircraft (SUSA) within the weight category 7 – 20 kg that there will be a future need for their aircraft to be assessed for airworthiness in relation to operating within 150 m of a congested area. The operator will need to put forward a ‘safety case’ to the CAA (or potentially another approved entity) for an assessment of the proposed type of operation, which will also include initial and continuing airworthiness considerations.
