By |2020-01-06T16:19:38+00:00August 21st, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

UK drone laws are relatively new and are having to adapt to the greater use of unmanned aircraft. Industry experts predict that the number of drones in use in the UK will soar over the next twenty years. As well as hobby flyers, commercial drone operators will be working for a broad range of industries. In May 2018 the Government announced a change to the UK Air Navigation Order of 2016, which means a new set of UK drone laws. Some parts of this came into force on 30 July 2018 with others following in November [...]

Drone photography UK Laws

By |2020-01-06T18:32:34+00:00August 15th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Drone photography UK laws are designed to protect the safety and privacy of the general public. Newly introduced data protection laws known as ‘GDPR’ have increased privacy protection in the UK.

Anyone using drones for aerial photography has a responsibility to understand existing laws and keep up with changes. The first important thing to understand is the difference in laws applying to hobby flyers and commercial drone operators. Anyone offering services like drone roof inspections and drone wedding [...]

Is it Legal to Shoot at a Drone?

Can you shoot down a drone is a question asked by those who fear drone technology and want to protect their privacy. They believe drones are used for ‘snooping’ and to peep through bathroom windows. These ideas are of course ridiculous! Concerns over privacy must be [...]

Since we launched the Drone Safe Register in November 2015, the most common feedback we have received is that the general public was simply unaware that it was illegal for pilots to operate commercially without the relevant IAA/CAA permissions. Our aim has been so much more than just another directory site getting lost in the world wide web.  We are taking our responsibility as the UK's largest professional network of CAA approved pilots very seriously and we're planning again to spend 2020 educating the general public on the importance of only working with legal drone operators.  We [...]
