Safety for aerial drone flights is our number one priority at Accutest International. Our pilots have passed the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved exams, flight assessments, and hold the established industry Remote Pilot Qualification (RPQ-s) for multi-rotor aircraft under 7kg.

The CAA approval regulations are very detailed but we are able to help you through the process of making an aerial shoot both legal and safe. We do a detailed online pre-flight survey with location check that includes airspace restrictions, nearby airports and no fly zones to see if there are any flight restrictions we need to be aware of. All of our commercial and domestic projects are risk assessed on an individual basis in accordance with our CAA approved operations manual. We include cordons, clearly marked landing area, and ground safety personnel. All aircraft are fitted with “return to home” safety features.

Civil Aviation Authority Approval

Accutest international has the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) “Permission for Commercial Operations” PfCO which means as a licensed commercial operator of UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles), we are governed and regulated by the CAA. The PfCO is mandatory for anyone flying drones for commercial use in the UK along with drone public liability insurance.  It is the basis of the drone photography laws in the U.K. We’re fully insured against injury and damage flying at altitudes of up to 400 feet.
