Just checked and I can't see any way of de-registering anything, or cancelling my French competency cert.

Can't see why it would be a problem anyway. If a gendarme wants to check my French docs while I am flying in the UK under our airspace regs he is welcome to do so.

The regulation says:

"UAS operators shall register themselves in the Member State where they have their residence for natural persons or where they have their principal place of business for legal persons and ensure that their registration information is accurate. A UAS operator cannot be registered in more than one Member State at a time."

I wonder if the French will remove non-residents from their database before 1st July next year.


Interesting question. I understand that acceptance of other countries registrations etc. is being discussed to allow people to travel and fly, but there are differences in the systems. For example, each of my models has a different registration in my name in France, rather than me being registered as an operator for all my models as is proposed for ther UK.

Another quote from article 14:

"Member States shall ensure that registration systems are digital and interoperable and allow for mutual access and exchange of information through the repository referred to in Article 74 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139."

I haven't got my head around all the transitional provisions, but I think that all of article 14 applies from 1st July 2020.


PS Another point to consider: the authorisation given to the associations only applies in the member state in which it is issued, so you might be limited to open category operation in other countries.

Those amongst us that believed that the focus on the operation of unmanned aerial systems, such as our model aircraft, was all about the future exploitation of the air space we use, may feel vindicated by the publication of CAP 1827 (Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in unsegregated airspace) by the CAA, which is opening up the whole matter for discussion. the only words missing are licence fees!

That ties in nicely with the coastguard trial that was announced a week or so ago.
