There is a bit on fpvuk : https://www.fpvuk.org/caa-registration-open-for-second-batch/

"These registrations will be processed in a second bulk export to the CAA in May 2020 (exact date TBC). A new exemption to be issued by the CAA before 23rd February 2020 will facilitate this second batch."

Not sure when that above was published but it suggests that there might have been an issue with the bulk export system and CAA may have a second go in May!!!

By that logic you should never register because they'll simply keep opening up new registration exemptions to cover those who did not register in time.   (?)

Just a brief change of direction. I think most don't accept the standard reasons put forward for all this. Safety - AFAIK no body killed by a drone, Amazon deliveries - not practical in the vast majority of locations, commercialisation in the form of land/farm/crop/power line/property/etc surveys - even if this grows significantly I can't see co existence becoming a problem in any but a few cases. So what is the driver behind this? What's the hidden agenda?
I don't have a TV licence and don't watch the banal programs and propaganda pumped out for consumption by the public. But I was made aware of a recent Panorama documentary 'Amazon, what they know about us'  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3qzJldMGeA. I watched a recording of it on YouTube with sound blanks so those that can I would watch it on BBC iplayer. It gets interesting from 40 mins in. The 'RING' video doorbell(Amazon now owns the company) and the fact that Amazon have an app in the USA that turns a group into an 'area protective surveillance hub' from which Amazon harvests data on peoples activities. The really interesting part comes next about drones. Amazon is proposing to use their delivery(?) drones to offer a service of protective surveillance of domestic properties and other areas using drones with a variety of sensors. Of course all data about the properties/their occupants/ movements etc will be harvested by Amazon for commercial(and other) purposes. Any accidental(?) surveillance of other properties will add to the data harvesting. No doubt government agencies will have some official(and unofficial) links and interest in the data obtained and may initiate some activities. A slight digression, 1/when I did hang gliding you could clearly hear and follow conversations on the ground when flying at 600ft; 2/ we are all aware of the photographic abilities of modern equipment and a 'protective surveillance' drone at 600ft and half a mile away could easily see into ones house through the windows, 3/ you may have seen clips of the police in China using drones to monitor and mount surveillance on the public during the COVID-19 outbreak.. I could comment more on this and other troubling 'surveillance' issues but watch it yourself and perhaps post your thoughts. One last comment; authority hates accountability, accountability comes from proof provided by photographic and video evidence. The advent of relatively cheap, good, available and easily flown video drones means authority no longer has a monopoly on information and would like to redress the balance. Additionally, we live in an increasingly 'watched' society, mainly by fixed camera networks. This 'protective surveillance' would be a significant step change in official capability. I find all this troubling.
I've been told to put my tin foil hat on before in the past when I raised this as the possible aim so I expect I'll get some of the same again.

The only thing with conspiracy theories is that people only ever reference "they". As in "they" are watching us.

"They" as a concept can also accurately be described as "fellow citizens" - which means that while Amazon is the brand people love to hate, people need to realise that it is actually people who work for Amazon who are performing these actions. In tackling it, it might be more worthwhile to actually call these people out rather than criticise "Amazon" because doing that makes you sound daft whereas if there are concrete names to challenge personally, people will be more likely to listen.

I do believe there is an agenda at play somewhere along the line - I would very much like to know what it is.

For what its worth, I feel very foolish for caving in to the demands of the state and wish I'd not given up my details. Especially since now it's not even needed.

If it's all about data then the last couple of weeks shows how easy the UK weather would mess this up completely. I find it difficult to believe Amazon would even consider this in the UK given our weather.

Personally I think it's all about the gov seeing a potential asset in the airspace. They want to clear as much 'clutter' as possible so it's worth most to them!!!!!

I think the CAA want another revenue stream also...And we are easy prey. Pay up or you are breaking the law...Tax. That is certainly one reason for it. All that data wouldn't even fill an IPAD let alone the 4,000,000,000 'computer system' they supposedly had to fund...It is all lies. We all know that.

Feeling well smug about not registering!! I never want any organisation other than the BMFA to have any details on me regarding my model plane flying HOBBY, I certainly don't want them shared with agencies all across Europe as is the case with the CAA tax/registration scam.... and I have printed the exemption out to shove down the throat of anyone that asks why i'm stood in a muddy farmers field threatening worms and the odd blade of grass with a turbine powered FPV plane. The worms aren't even scared. They are hard as nuts where I live, and probably enjoy the odd haircut from a 90mph landing. They are the only souls in danger.

Big up the United Kingdom and don't be prey to the long game that is being played out.. Fight it, resist, don't sign up, don't comply. Enjoy your freedoms as those before us, and protect them as best you can, like those before us.  :-)

Nothing else for it. Plastic surgery and a house move.
