Man with a Drone is a CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) approved Professional Operator, possessing a PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) and for your peace of mind also has £2 Million Public Liability Insurance.

In all operations safety is absolutely paramount – and there maybe occasions when the expected project / job cannot go ahead – due to the weather or proximity of deemed hazards – the latter is normally determined fairly easily with the office based pre-site survey – but will still need to be confirmed on site. In all cases the Remote Pilot has the final say as to whether is safe to fly or whether the job has to be postponed or cancelled.

The CAA has strict rules and guidelines on the flying of UAVs – and Man with A Drone adheres to these in all and every circumstance.

The general rules are:-

> Permission must be gained from any land owner before operations can commence.

> There must be 50 metre seperation from the UAV from people, vehicles and buildings not under control of Man with a Drone.

> There must be 30 metre seperation from the UAV during take off and landing from people, vehicles and buildings not under control of Man with a Drone.

> UAVs cannot fly in the vicinity of aerodromes or within controlled airspace

> Man with a Drone cannot fly more than 400ft (120metres) from the surface in height

> There is a maximum of 500 metres forward distance from the take off point.

> Visual line of site (VLOS) of the UAV must be maintained at all times.

> For groups of people over 1000 persons – a minimum of 150 metres distance from the UAV must be maintained.

> Man with a Drone complies fully with CAP 393 of the Air Navigation Order (CAA)

The Phantom 4 has many failsafe options including return to home – and Man with a Drone has an CAA approved Operations Manual which includes all our available scope of operations and can be viewed at any time by the client.
