Commercial drone pilot directory
Being included within an online business directory boosts your commercial drone business’s online visibility. It is a well-known fact that the more quality links your website has, the more search engine visibility you gain.
Some drone directories allow anyone to list and manage their inclusion. CAS listed believes this practice to be a hindrance to people looking for a professional drone operator. Commercial drone pilots should have current certification or authorisations from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the proper insurance cover in place.
Find local drone operators
All drone operations have a location and the specific aerial services required. People search: –
- Aerial Service
Directories are searchable data that is presented to match the entered search criteria. The quality of the returned data is as good as the quality of the data held within the directory. The first question should be “does the pilot hold current CAA certification or authorisation for commercial work”? Although no longer a legal requirement, pilots with none will be dramatically limited in the work they can legally undertake.
Drone pilot data
In the United Kingdom, the CAA regulates and authorises drone pilots to undertake commercial aerial works. This regulated practice requires the drone pilot to have passed and maintain professional standards and apply for authorisation.
The CAA holds and publishes the latest drone pilot data for download. CORRECTION: As of 21st June 2021 the list has been withdrawn by the CAA.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) services
Aerial photography and video are the most common. The captured data can used in a variety of ways including: –
- Aerial photography
- Aerial film
- 3d mapping
- Thermal analysis
- Visual inspection
- Visual monitoring
Drone technology is making great advancements resulting in lowering equipment cost and improving airtime and image quality. These factors allow more people to enter the commercial area driving a healthy and competitive sector.
Reducing aerial imagery costs
Factors such as the pilot’s travel distance, project timescale and delivery deadline all impact cost. Producing a briefing document detailing the requirements allows pilots to submit a quotation for the aerial works. It defines the project tasks and goals within a known budget.
UK drone legislation
Flying a UAV for both recreational and commercial applications requires the pilot to register their details with drone safe. Drone use is growing and the UK skies are one of the most congested in the world.
The website helps UK drone users access the information they need to fly their drones safely and legally, without endangering others.
The number 1 drone pilot search engine
Designed as the all-inclusive drone pilot search engine, caslisted.com lists every drone pilot with current CAA certification or authorisations. A pilot’s authorisation has both an issue and expiry date. The quality of data is within a search engine is crucial to delivering accurate results. This is even more so when there is a legal requirement for the business being listed to hold current CAA certification or authorisations.
Commercial drone pilots benefit from inclusion within the drone search engine. To improve visibility each pilot should verify their location.
