How old do you need to be to fly under an A2 C of C? Can my Children do it and fly with me?

What's the minimum age a drone pilot can be, to take their A2 Theory Exam and get their A2 C of C?

The A2 Subcategory now allows much younger people to operate drones, provided they are supervised by an appropriately aged person... But there are a few things you need to know first.

The minimum age which someone can take their A2 Theory Course/Exam and hold their A2 Certificate is just 12 years of age

However, anyone under the age of 18 who operates a drone in the UK MUST be supervised by an adult aged 18+. This adult is known in Aviation Law as the 'UAS Operator' and that person must be aware of the responsibilities associated with this (don't worry, it's no-where near as bad as it sounds! :) You can find out more about what 'UAS Operator' means, HERE ).
