This summer, Drone Safe Register requests anybody looking to hire a drone operator, please hire a safe and legal pilot to be sure that your drone activity is conducted safely.
Let’s be very clear, we are not aiming this at anybody flying their drone for fun or as a hobby. This is solely aimed at those receiving PAYMENT for their drone work and who are operating without CAA / IAA approvals.
Anybody operating a drone commercially without insurance and approval from the CAA / IAA is breaking the law. This is not acceptable. The simple solution is to ensure YOUR pilot is LEGAL. When HIRING a drone operator simply ask to see a copy of the pilot’s CAA / IAA licence and their commercial insurance certificate.
These documents prove that the drone operator is competent, compliant, safe and legal. Any pilot that can show you their CAA / IAA licence document means they have passed a safety flight test and they operate in accordance of their operations manual.
