Drone FAQs

What is a drone?

A drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV - which is a robot that can fly autonomously with a remote control, or from software controlled flight plans.

What are they used for?

Drones are used for many reasons in public and private sectors but consumers often use them to capture aerial photography and video footage. Drones capture a bird’s-eye view of a location or area that can be too difficult or dangerous to capture using other recording or surveillance equipment.

What does aerial photography mean?

Anything shot from the air, whether it's be video or photos. In the past the most common aerial photography involved helicopters, now with powerful battery powered drones on the market, aerial photography is more accessible than ever before. It’s only natural for travel photographers to want to fly their drones around the famous attractions around the world.

What does the law say about drones?

In the UK, drones must be operated in accordance with the law, whether they are being used for recreation or commercial purposes. If operating commercially, a Permit For Aerial Work (PFAW) must be obtained from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

To operate within the law, all drone flights must take place within line of sight of the pilot which in practice is no further than 500 metres, but may be less if you are flying a small aircraft. No flight must exceed 400ft in altitude - this may bring you into conflict with manned aviation.

You are NOT permitted to:

You must also have permission from the appropriate landowners.

How can I get a drone license?

If you’re planning to fly your drone for commercial reasons, you are required to seek permission from the CAA. You can apply for permissions to use your drone from the CAA online here:
