The mandatory requirement to register covers owners of drones or model aircraft of any description weighing more than 250g (8.8oz). Owners of unregistered drones could then face the threat of a fine of £1000.00
Also, the CAA is starting a service to reunite owners with their lost drones or aircraft.
25% of owners, now known as operators, have lost a drone at some point, figures from the CAA .
Drones & aircraft mainly go missing because of malfunctions in flight. The main one being loss of battery power, loss of signal or technical failures.
But 25% of losses are due to pilot error.
CAA spokesman Jonathan Nicholson said: "Our aim is for the Drones Reunited platform to become an essential service for the drone community - the first port of call for anyone who has lost, or found, a drone."
The CAA have said, anyone who registered their drone would get free access to the service, which issues each device with a unique identification code.
