A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC)
The A2 CofC qualification allows you to fly any drone weighing 2kg or less in the A2 Open Sub-Category. This means that you will be able to fly in built-up areas and closer (50m, laterally) to uninvolved people. If you fly a drone weighing 500g or less the A2 CofC will allow you to fly it in the A1 Open Sub-Category where the only separation rule is that you should not intentionally fly overhead uninvolved people. You do not need the A2 CofC if you fly a drone weighing 250g or less, although many people still choose to gain the qualification anyway. Whether you fly for fun or professionally the A2 CofC gives you greater flexibility to fly your drone in different locations.
