The global drone industry is soaring!   Drones are revolutionising the way we do business.  From transporting goods to boosting crop productivity; from servicing offshore ships to aerial filming for TV/film, the commercial applications for drones are growing exponentially.  All sectors of industry are benefiting from the application of drone technology with the biggest commercial impacts being witnessed in agriculture, infrastructure, transport, security and media. According to recent report by PricewaterhouseCoopers the global market for drones in business could be worth over $127 billion (£88bn) by 2020 and the UK is set to play a major part in that.

The use of various types of unmanned aircraft ‘drones’ has massively increased over the past few years.   Drones have many uses - Utilities, Agriculture, Construction, Aerial Survey, Planning, Aerial Film & Photo to name just a few. Currently the UK has just under 1500 pilots with correct CAA permission.  If flying a drone for private leisure, you do not require CAA permission but the pilot should take full responsibility for doing so safely.  Using a drone for ‘paid aerial work’ requires you to hold correct CAA permission and carry valid insurance. Drone Safe Register holds a list of CAA approved drone operators [...]

More Drone Pilots than Ever being Trained

By |2019-01-18T21:16:16+01:00March 9th, 2016|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

More drone pilots than ever are now becoming trained and legal as Drone Safe Register tackles the use of illegal drones.  Before Drone Safe Register launched back in November 2015 it was very clear the UK had a huge problem with drone pilots operating without CAA permission and correct insurance. Drone Safe Register has now targeted over 1.6 million adults with its short educational video receiving well over 500,000 views since launch. A very impressive number to say the least. Lack of public awareness was the main problem as the hiring public simply didn’t know the rules and so we are [...]

The Use of drones filming events this summer

By |2019-01-18T20:38:24+01:00March 7th, 2016|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Drones are fantastic but must only be flown at events by professionally trained pilots.  All qualified pilots must attend ground school, complete an operations manual and be flight tested before the CAA will issue the pilot or company permission. Valid insurance is a must. No drones can be flown within 150 metres of gatherings of 1000 or more persons. If you have a group of 1000 persons or less, providing the group are within the pilots control the 150m rule is removed completely. This is why you will see even more close range drone footage pictured within the [...]

Working to Stamp Out Illegal Drone Operators in the UK and Ireland

By |2019-01-17T19:14:18+01:00December 10th, 2015|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

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 CAA permissions and insurances. Our aim is to be so much more than just another directory site getting lost in the world wide web.  We are taking our responsibility as licensed pilots very seriously and we're planning to spend 2016 educating the general public on the importance of only working with legal drone operators.  We will be working with schools, [...]

The UK drone industry is growing at a rapid pace and UAVs are becoming an increasingly common sight in our skies. While there are many positive aspects to this new industry, it does seem as though negative drone-related news is far more widely reported in today's media. 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 [...]
