Hi Cients, would this course apply to people from the UK seeming it is from EuroControl, seeming the uk has left the EU how would it stand potentially, would it be legal in the UK, or would it only apply if i chose to go into any EU country, would i be then safe to fly there after doing this course, just wondering as have been having a look and it does seem very interesting, I'm just a little sceptical of getting free thing's in life.

Bear in mind that this is A1/A3 training, and your existing CAA qualification remains valid for these categories.

The additional training requirement to fly away closer than 150m from residential areas is the A2 category, which this does not cover.

Hello Mark!
Sorry for the delay.
I checked the registration platform and you can register as working on a country, including UK.
However, the regulations are mandatory only to all the EU countries. However there are differences, for example in the need to have an insurance.
Concluding, probably this is not directly applicable in UK regulations, however the course is interesting about the concepts A1, A2 and A3.
Best regards,
Luís

I have found that UK has also a similar concept:

Hi Nik!
I think that the concept is "much heavier drone, maintain much safer distance".
In fact, with light drones (until 900 grams) you can fly close to people and infrastructures (A1 subcategory). Not allowed to fly over people assembly.
With A2 you have to fly 30 meters from people and buildings but you can flyover isolated people, not assembly. In this subcategory, due to the possibility of flyover people associated with the weight of the drone (maximum 4 kg) you have to complementary pass a practical examination.
In category A3 you are not allowed to flyover people neither buildings and the drone has to fly away 150 meters from them.
At least is my understanding.
Have nice flights.

This training is only valid for EASA countries, as the UK left EASA this is no longer valid. Although there are similar rules in the UK, you need a valid UK CAA certificate to fly in the UK.

In EASA countries, UAS operations in the Open category are divided in three subcategories:

A1 - fly over people

A2 - fly close to people

A3 - fly away from people, buikdings, factories amd leisure places

UAS will be classed according to the EASA rule as C0, C1, C2, C3 and C4. There no C classed UAS at this moment but when they will the DJI Mini will be a C0, the MA 2 a C1 and M2P a C2.
You need the A1-A3 CofC to fly a C1 UAS in all subcategories and to fly C2, C3 and C4 UAS only in subcategory A3. The later UAS's can fly in the subcategory A2 if the pilot has a A2 CofC.

Because there aren't any C classed UAS at this moment, all existing and unclassed drones are considered legacy.

Legacy UAS are separeted by weight and there will be a transition period up to December 31st 2022.

sub250gr - can fly in all subcategories (A1, A2 and A3) without any pilot certification. Only reading of  the Manufacturer Manual is required,

250gr-499gr - can fly in subcategories A1, A2 and A3 with the A1-A3 CofC, only during the transition period. After it will be only allowed to fly in subcategory A3.

500gr-1999gr . can fly in subcategory A3 with the A1-A3 CofC. During the ttransition period can be allowed to fly in subcategory A2 with the A2 CofC.

I have a DJI Mavic Mini and I don't need any CofC to fly it in EASA countries, However, I did the EuroControl A1-A3 CofC and I recomend it to all UAS pilots even if it isn't required.

The A2 category isn't the same if you are flying a C classed UAS or a legacy UAS. C classed can fly to 30 meters but legacy UAS can only fly to 50 meters.
