Air Traffic Management And Unmanned Aircraft Act 2021

Overview of the Act

  1. The Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Act is divided into four parts. Parts 1 and 2 of the Act, "Airspace change proposals" and "Air traffic", make provision about airspace change proposals ("ACPs"), the licensing regime for air traffic services under Part 1 of the Transport Act 2000 ("the 2000 Act"), and airport slot allocation. Part 3 of the Act, "Unmanned aircraft", makes provision to tackle the misuse of unmanned aircraft ("UA"). The measures contained in Part 3 of the Act will provide greater enforcement capability to the police and act as a deterrent to those who would commit offences related to UA. Part 4 of the Act, "General", makes general provision in respect of the Act as a whole.
