Up, up and away!

Depending on how many quote requests you chose, we will automatically send the information that you have entered to that number of your nearest DSR drone pilots. They will then respond back to you directly just as soon as they are able.

Please note that our professional pilots are likely to be working hard, so allow some time for them to come back to you. It is usual for them to ask you a few more questions about the work you want them to do, as quoting for drone services is very location and risk assessment specific.

CAA Approved Pilots

Any drone pilot receiving payment for aerial work is legally required to have CAA / IAA permission and valid commercial insurance. DSR has made the process of finding and hiring a legal drone pilot quick and easy. By ensuring that your drone pilot has their DSR pilot card, you can rest assured that you are employing the services of an approved drone pilot who operates in accordance with UK/ ROI drone laws.

All registered drones and pilots are marked with ID cards and branded lanyards to reassure the public they are part of a membership organisation and flying safely within the law


Richard visited in order to film our property. He was highly professional before, during and after his visit, following all the correct safety procedures. His footage was amazing, very high res and beautifully edited. I would have no hesitation in hiring Richard again.

I hired Stuart to carry out a roof survey of my terraced property. Stuart was very professional and carried out the survey in less than 20 mins. I received the survey photos several hours later. All in all a great service. Highly recommend! A+



I've had a fantastic experience with Jason, who is himself very friendly and communicative. Good availability, very responsive and understanding of instructions, and can deliver high quality footage and editing when needed. Couldn't recommend more.

Flypic carried out a roof survey of my house and produced some excellent photos and videos. The flypic team were punctual, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Flypic to anyone requiring aerial imaging.



Andrea was brilliant to work with, so friendly and accommodating. He knew exactly how to capture the best aerial footage of our wedding day, and produced the most beautiful video that I’ll treasure forever. I couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend him.

As seen on Dragons Den

“Whilst there will always be those that flout the law for their own gain, we want the Drone Safe Register to support the thousands of responsible drone pilots there are in the UK that are fed up of being eyed suspiciously when flying their drone and to reassure the public that most of the drone operators in this country are not a risk to their safety or privacy.”
