The DSR OSC is an Operating Safety Case written to allow appropriately trained and approved DSR pilots to fly against a specific set of CAA exemptions. The exemptions allow for take off and landing and flights closer to People, Vehicles, Vessels and Structures outside the Remote Pilot’s control than a standard CAA permission. There are minimum qualifications which can be found on the application form and you will have to attend an intensive one day training course culminating in written and flight tests.

Depending on the air-frame you are using the DSR OSC allows for take off and landing down to 10m, flight down to 20m, flight down to 75m from crowds >1000 and Extended Visual Line of Sight (EVLOS) flights up to 1000m from the Remote Pilot. We are intending to improve these as much as we can as we renew.
