Congratulations! You have decided to join one of the most exciting new tech industries evolving in the UK and across the world, and the website of the largest provider of independent drone operators in the UK.

So many people are enjoying flying drones as a hobby now, along with those using them commercially, that they are an increasingly common sight in our skies. However, negative press coverage, especially around the Christmas time Gatwick incident, means that people can be feeling very suspicious if they see one over or around their property.

There are hundreds of safe and legal drone ops out [...]

UK comercial Drone Industry

By |2019-01-29T12:53:21+01:00July 29th, 2016|Categories: General|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

The UK commercial drone industry has reached a crisis point again.  The UK is awash with illegal drone pilots who are working for commercial gain who think they are above the law. It is a criminal offence to fly a drone for work without permission from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Illegal drone pilots also typically fly without insurance indemnity meaning that if they crash their drone into your vehicle, property or worse you – there is nobody to pay for the damage. This state of crisis caused by drone pilots working illegally without CAA permission or insurance is unacceptable [...]

Marathons and other large races can be an ideal event to be captured from an aerial perspective as they are such an impressive spectacle when seen from a bird's eye view.  However, these can have participants and spectators numbering over 1000 people.  This changes the law as it applies to drones. With groups of more than 1000 people, your drone operator will need to be 150 meters away at all times. They should carry out a thorough site survey to ensure it is feasible to carry out the required work and assess any risks. Ensure they [...]
