Drone: Also referred to as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle’ (UAV); ‘Small Unmanned Aircraft’ (SUA); ‘Remotely Piloted Aircraft System’ (RPAS); ‘Unmanned Aircraft System’ (UAS)
A lot of SUA operators come to this activity from flying model aircraft. If you are reading this page, you will realise I am flying drones with a photographer’s eye, therefore able to offer clients great composition and offering a variety of well composed video sequences.
Do be aware of SUA operators who are not CAA approved. You will only get full legal compliance from an operator with a CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) who will have been correctly trained and passed the relevant exams in this field. You can check any UK commercial operator on the CAA’s register at this link.
