The Civil Aviation Authority
For our purposes the CAA is the main regulatory body in the UK for anything which flies in UK airspace. It provides us with rules, regulations and advice on the safe operation of RC Models. Its website has a section dedicated to Model flying and registration requirements which all members should be aware of, and compliant with. CAA Model Flying Advice.
The BMFA also has a significant amount of information on Model flying and the exemptions to the CAA requirements which as BMFA members we benefit from. See https://rcc.bmfa.uk/
