Top 3 things to know when working with any drone pilot
You may be seasoned in working with drone pilots. This could be the first time or maybe you are thinking about doing it yourself. Whichever, here are 3. points that should be considered. They help people find the right operator.
You may have thought that insurance is a given or maybe not even considered any possible implications. It doesn’t matter if you are doing it yourself (which there is legislation that needs to be followed) or commissioning an operator. Insurance should always be understood and considered. Remember you are commissioning the work and ultimately you have a duty of care and ultimately have a responsibility in the rare case that something should go wrong.
Always check that the correct insurance cover is in place. A commercial pilot holding CAA permissions are required by law to hold this. Using a local photographer or friend with a drone is not really a good idea and in most circumstances illegal.
UK legislation is in place to ensure that both registration and the correct use of drones in all situations are safe and appropriate. This legislation is neither fixed and amended on a regular basis. Commercial drone pilots have a duty to not only work within the legislation but also to be aware of all amendments on a project by project basis. As a hobbyist, you also have to operate your drone within the legislation. The penalties are wide-ranging so you always need to consider what you or an operator you are directing are doing.
As with anything cost has a bearing, but your project is unique. Consider a balanced approach when speaking with a potential supplier. The majority of drone pilots will offer free advice and also help you understand not only what will be involved in delivering your project needs but also the cost implications.
Remember you may be asking for something that is not possible or outside of the legislation. If your supplier takes it on with a “don’t worry” attitude then you should question this approach. The lowest cost also usually means the lowest input and quality.
Thinking of becoming a commercial drone pilot?
To undertake commercial work for flying a drone you need to have CAA permissions. This requires professional training from approved training schools. The schools are located all over the UK so if you are interested in becoming a commercial drone pilot contact a few of them and they will tell you what this involves and the costs. Use the CAS Listed Training School interactive map to locate training schools near to you.
