It almost goes without saying that the most important aspect of any airborne operation is safety. Current legislation in the UK states that in order for any commercial aerial work to be carried out the company concerned must be registered with the CAA and to have obtained Permission for Commercial Operation.
The Hall is fully licensed with an RPQ-s Certificate and our PfCO from the CAA (copies of our certificates are available on request).
The rules and regulations for aerial work can be found in the ‘Air Navigation Order (CAP 393)‘. In particular ‘Article 95' – Small unmanned surveillance aircraft’ states the following;
1. The person in charge of a small unmanned surveillance aircraft must not fly the aircraft in any of the circumstances described below except in accordance with a permission issued by the CAA.
2. Over or within 150 metres of a congested area.
3. Over or within 150 metres of an organised open-air assembly of more than 1000 persons.
4. Within 50 metres of any vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under control of the pilot in command.
5. Within 50 metres of any person (not under control of the pilot in command).
6. Within 30 metres of any person during take off or landing (not under control of the pilot in command).
