CraneThe CAA has announced that from the 6 September 2021, crane users must notify them of any crane that is above 100m above ground level, regardless of proximity to aerodromes or height of surrounding structures or trees.

All notifications should be sent to the CAA by email. Full details about the updated guidance for Crane Users and Associated CPA TIN and how to submit it, can be found here.

  • An accurate maximum height.
  • Start and completion dates.
