Planning your event and the use of aerial commercial drones

It all depends on how and where you want to use drones. It’s very easy to think that need an drone for your event just because they’re trendy. The truth is unless drones aren’t used strategically for your event they can be a distraction for your audience or attendees.

Additionally, you’ll have to consider the regulations and laws when flying drones at events. This laws may very from country to country and change from time to time. That’s why you should only hire CAA trained and qualified pilots.

At Interstellar Drones our pilots hold a current PfCO (Permissions for Commercial Operations) or what otherwise would be a ‘license’, which was previously also known as Permission for Aerial Work (PfAW) from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). All our drone pilots have to go through a thorough training process and assessment before be able to hold a commercial pilot license to operate SUA/SUSA  (Small Unmanned Aircraft / Small Unmanned Surveillance Aircraft).

Interstellar Drones and CAA flying regulations

Interstellar Drones pilots are CAA fully compliant and have to log a minimum number of flying to ensure their pilots status. Additionally, we keep well informed and up to date with any changes within the CAA as they regularly issue updates to the Air Navigation Order & CAP722. To give you an idea of some of the rules you’ll need to follow when using drones at your event, consider the following laws:

  • Drones must not be flown over a maximum height of 400ft, no more than 500m from you horizontally, and must always remain within sight.
  • Drones must be flown 150m away or more from congested areas, unless special permission is granted.
  • Commercial operators, flying drones under 7kg 20kg (updated August 2018), are granted this as part of a PfCO.
  • You must not fly within 1km of an airport boundary.

If these rules are ignored operators may suffer a prosecution. That’s why we recommend you contact us if you need any assistance in planning and execution of your events, news, festival, commercials or filmmaking projects.
