Sandy beaches, fossil cliffs and national parks make Devon one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations. If the weather could be guaranteed, many people would be happy to holiday here rather than travel abroad.
Home to The English Riviera – a series of picturesque harbour towns including Paignton, Brixham and Torquay – Devon has everything from five star hotels to budget self-catering holiday lets.
Drone hire in Devon is in high demand. Photographers who have captured the beauty of the scenery from the ground are now able to shoot from an aerial perspective. Beaches, lakes and rivers are a favourite subject for aerial images, and this is one of the reasons drone hire in Devon has become so popular.
Anyone wanting to sell their drone shots or use them for commercial purposes needs approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to operate. For example, shooting pictures of a hotel for use on a website is considered to be commercial drone work. Obtaining approval and a PFCO (Permission to Fly Commercial Operations) can be time consuming and expensive, and for this reason it’s worth looking into drone hire in Devon if you need some commercial shots.
