Visual Air are a licensed operator with the CAA and there are certain regulations required before any flight can take place otherwise insurance and public liability will be invalid.
Each job is assessed on an individual basis but a basic rundown of what is required is listed below.
- A site survey is required to check whether the flight required will be in controlled air space as well as assessing potiential hazards that can cause harm to people or structures within the flight plan.
- Permission from the land owner is required for the take off and landing area.
- A visual line of site of the UAV and a maximum of 400ft is allowed as well as 500meters distance. Usually this is way more than is required.
- We are unable to fly over and person or structure that are not in our control, for example not having someones consent and/or owners permission.
A pre-flight visit may be required, but usually a postcode would be sufficient for checks online to be made to see if there are any flight restrictions that we need to be made aware of.
