I am qualified and authorised by the CAA to carry out commercial drone operations in the UK 

It is important to check that anyone doing this work that is to be used IN ANY way in a commercial sense (paid or unpaid) is qualified, approved, and insured to do so. Failure to do so may have legal implications for all parties involved.  

Where drone work is not permitted there is the possibility of working from an elevated pole up to heights of 30ft.

The CAA produces a monthly list of operators who are qualified and legal to carry out commercial drone work. Please click the link to check you are working with a qualified operator such as myself. LINK

As a qualified and CAA approved drone operator I am authorised to produce large commercial images from ground level up to a height of 400ft high. It can be incredibly useful for showing a property and land in its location and surroundings.

When commissioned I always supply a series of retouched and corrected images giving you plenty of options to choose from.

There are certain rules and criteria I must fulfil before I can legally produce work for you from a drone which are mentioned below.  Please take a moment to review these before connecting with me to commission drone work.

rules of commercial operations

These are a brief summary of the main rules which I set out on every job to insure I only operate in safe legal conditions (detailed rules may be supplied on request):

  • The property MUST be 50m (150ft) from all other surrounding properties or people

  • When operating the drone after being briefed by the pilot all persons and animals must be kept inside with the windows closed

  • The operator May not fly over land or property owned by third parties unless express written permission has been given

  • Drone operations may not happen in any airspace that conflicts with other manned aircraft or wildlife

  • Flights cannot be carried out in adverse weather conditions this includes rain, fog, mist or high humidity, and winds / gusts around or above 24mph

  • Close to power and train lines or any electrical equipment that may interfere with the drones operations

  • The drone must be in clear line of sight of the operator AT ALL TIMES

  • In good daylight hours, additional qualifications are required for night flight

  • Please be aware following a location assessment before and on the day of the shoot the operator reserves the right to cancel the flight for safety reasons up until the point they are due to fly.
