Drone hire in Essex is a growth industry, and there’s high demand for pilots with approval for commercial work by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Anyone operating unmanned aircraft for pay or reward needs CAA approval, so always check when booking drone hire in Essex or any other county.
As well as ensuring your project is carried out legally, hiring a CAA approved drone pilot gives you peace of mind that an operator will act professionally and fly safely. The location of Stansted and Southend Airports in Essex, as well as several local aerodromes, means the airspace is more crowded than many other parts of the UK. This is an important consideration for a drone pilot, and he may have to notify air traffic control depending on where your drone hire in Essex is needed.
Built up areas such as Colchester, Chelmsford and Braintree are a challenge for a commercial drone operator, but don’t assume that that’s it illegal to fly there. An experienced pilot will work with you to find a safe place for take off and landing and a way to carry out the work you need within the law.

Working with a hobbyist drone pilot may be a cheaper option, but the law is clamping down so search the Drone Safe Register website to ensure you hire a professional.
