Permission for Aerial Work

All drone operators in the UK must be CAA Approved to perform any aerial work and abide by the rules and regulations  stipulated by the aviation authority.  As a CAA certified company, with many hours of flight time, Birds Eye View Productions take the safety of every flight, our crew, our clients and the pubic seriously. All of our pilots have their BNUC-S Pilot Qualification which is a required pre-requisite if being granted permissions for aerial work (PFAW).


Every flight is meticulously planned and involves a pre-site survey and risk- assessment of the site to highlight any obstacles or dangers t the safe operation of our drones. We would recommend that you always ask the operator that you are enquiring with if they have a copy of their certificates and where necessary a copy of their method statement.


Additionally, we are always happy to show proof of our insurance cover on request and would advocate that you should also get a copy of these documents too as part of your due-diligence on the type of company you will commission. We are very passionate about what we do and what to protect the industry by ensuring that any aerial filming companies that are used are CAA approved and licensed, and more importantly, know what they are doing and not operating illegally and putting the public at danger.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us as we would be more than happy to run through what can and cannot be achieved in line with the rules and regulations outline by the CAA.
