Drones & Model Aircraft Working Group

The Drones and Model-Flying Working Group has been established to educate Parliament and Government, carry out research and propose policy designed to further the aims of promoting unmanned aerial systems (UAS) whilst protecting long-established model flying activities. The group will function as a dedicated team of experts and parliamentarians to greater inform and coordinate the action of the whole All-Party Parliamentary Group for General Aviation when representing Drone and Model Flying issues to Government. As with the six existing APPG Working Groups, the group is made up of the country’s leading experts; in this case with knowledge of Drones, Model Aircraft, unmanned systems and future technologies. The group will select its own Sector and Parliamentary Chairs and establish its own detailed programme of work. This will be published alongside the other Working Group programmes on the APPG website and publicised across the aviation sector for further industry-wide input.
