As spring approaches and the UK’s weather improves soon we’ll be seeing more drones taking to the skies than ever before. Drone season is nearly upon us and this year DSR predicts that in 2019 we shall see more drones being flown at events than ever before.  This is great news as the nation’s businesses embrace drone technology.  There is nothing wrong with this at all, as long as the pilots flying drones at events are legal commercial pilots.
