Most members are probably aware that the CAA were proposing a 20% increase in the Operator Registration Fee from £10 to £12 from April 2023 (see https://bmfa.org/caa-proposes-20-increase-in-operator-registration-fee-from-april-2023).
The CAA run a consultation on their proposed fee increases each year and normally receive a few dozen responses. This year, the CAA received hundreds of responses, the majority of which were from model aircraft/drone flyers. They have just published their scheme of charges for 23/24 (https://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/404%20GAS%202023-24%20(002).pdf) and it seems that they have taken on board the feedback they received. The Operator registration fee will be still be increasing but to £10.33 rather than the proposed £12.
Thanks to all those who took the time to respond to the consultation.
