In order to operate in the UK and in accordance with our licence we must not:-
Fly over or within 150 metres of any congested area of a city, town or settlement without prior exception form the CAA. This requires a safety case being submitted to the CAA in advance.
Fly within 50 metres of any person, vessel, vehicle or structure not under the control of the Remote Pilot; during take-off or landing, however, the aircraft must not be flown within 30 metres of any person, unless that person is under the control of the Remote Pilot.
Flying within controlled airspace (around airports for example) needs clearance from the control tower which we can arrange.
We also need to be aware of sensitive areas like prisons, military facilities etc. We check every location in advance of the shoot and can obtain permissions if it’s possible.
