There’s Never Been a Better Time to Join the Drone Safe Register The drone industry is new and changing fast. December 2018 saw apparent drone related activity close Gatwick airport and created a ripple effect amongst the general public with regards to drone operators, and some changes in the law regarding how all drone pilots (both commercial and amateur) can operate.

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.

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. As drone technology is still relatively new, legislation is having to catch up and adapt to their use. 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.

Is it Legal to Shoot at a Drone?

Public perception of drones remains negative, and this is largely driven by scare stories in the popular press. Reports of near-misses with aircraft are often highly questionable, but they grab headlines and sell newspapers. The truth is that the vast majority of drone owners use their aircraft safely and responsibly. 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 [...]

The truth of the matter is that, when operated by a professional pilot who has permission from the CAA to undertake aerial work, UAVs offer a huge range of filming and photography benefits to businesses and the general public. Here are just a few: Unique angles on events Cost effective [...]
