Safety First!

The Picture Taker is now registered with the CAA and has been given permission to fly a drone commercially.  Being given permission by the CAA does not permit to me fly so there are a number of things that need to be put together before a flight can takes place.

The Picture Taker follows the CAA SUSA regulations but will not fly under any of the following below circumstances unless obtained specific permission from the CAA:

  • Any venue or land where the drones needs to take off will require landowner permission
  • Fly over or within 150 metres of any congested area
  • Over or within 150 metres of an organised open-air assembly of more than 1,000
  • Within 50 metres of any vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under the control of pilot working for The Picture Taker
  • No persons to be withing 30 metres of take off except being under the control of the pilot working for The Picture Taker
  • The aircraft will not be flown above the height of 400 feet and at a visual line of sight of 500 in distance

DRONE HIRE

Creating stunning imagery and cinematic footage with upto 4K resolution.  Before you consider footage taken from a SUAV (Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) you need to be aware of the following:

The pilot must have a RPAS Certificate (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) and a PfCO (Permit for Commercial Operations) Without these the pilot will be operating with out permission and may be prosecuted if found along with the people that hired them.
 

I am a qualified SUAV pilot and have been given permissions by the CAA to fly commercially including weddings.

Before any flight it is important that I have permissions to take off by the owner of the land in which the flight is to take place.  It is compulsory that a pre-deployment survey is carried out to minimise risk on the day to other air users, property, animals and people.  On the day it is also compulsory that an onsite survey is carried out to assess the current location, weather and risk management to ensure safe flight.

Travel is charged at 90p per mile for all round distance.
Price includes a Pre Deployment Survey and an OnSite Survey.
