Lawrence Clift Photography hold a current PfCO (Permission For Commercial Operatiuons) as issued by the CAA. We have been flying UAV's commercially since 2014 and currently use a DJI Inspire along with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

 

As always, the most important aspect of any operation is safety. Current legislation in the United Kingdom states in order for any aerial work to be carried out or any work offering valuable consideration to be done, the company needs to be registered with the CAA and has to have obtained permission for aerial work. At Lawrence Clift Photography we take this very seriously, which is why we are fully licensed with a BNUC-S certificate. The rules and regulations for aerial work can be found in the ‘Air Navigation Order (CAP 393)‘. In particular ‘Article 167 – Small unmanned surveillance aircraft’ states the following:

 

  • 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.

  • Over or within 150 metres of a congested area.

  • Over or within 150 metres of an organised open-air assembly of more than 1000 persons.

  • Within 50 metres of any vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under control of the pilot in command.

  • Within 50 metres of any person (not under control of the pilot in command).

  • Within 30 metres of any person during take off or landing (not under control of the pilot in command).
