As Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), commonly known as Drones have become cheaper, we have seen an increase number of companies being approached & offered aerial services. A lot of them are operating illegally, without the CAA permission or insurance.
By Law, In the UK, any company or person using drones commercially requires permission from the Civil Aviation Authority. To obtain CAA permission the company has to ensure that the firms' staff are fully trained in UAV use and a wide range of relevant areas which affect UAV operation. Some of those areas includes but are not limited to training, weather, UAV handling, human factors and emergency procedures. It is a requirement for a drone pilot to be fully trained and hold the relevant qualifications which are recognised by CAA. All Sanbi Pilots hold UAPQ-7 qualification & we have CAA permission for aerial work across the UK.
