Unmanned Aircraft Operational Authorisation


The key element of the Specific category is that the UAS operator is required to hold an operational authorisation, which has been issued by the CAA.

This operational authorisation will be based on the CAA’s evaluation of a safety risk assessment that has been produced by the UAS operator or, in some circumstances, has been ‘pre-defined’ and published by the CAA.

The operational authorisation document sets out the privileges and limits of the operation. Given the name of the category, each operational authorisation is specific to the named UAS operator and is dependent on the risk assessment and evidence supplied to the CAA by that operator.
