There are already charges that exist for certain drone users, when applying to the CAA for permission to operate commercially or for an exemption from an Air Navigation Order article. When registration of drone operators is implemented later this year, drone operators will be required to pay the CAA a registration charge in order to fund the running and maintenance of the service. The CAA will consult on the structure of the proposed charging later this year.
