Our Pilots

Aerial Drones Technologies limited has the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) “Permission for Aerial Work” PFAW which means, as a licensed commercial operator of UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) we are governed and regulated by the CAA.


The PFAW and PAAS are mandatory for any business operating as a commercial Drones service provider in the uk and Nigeria , along with the adequate public liability insurance.


Aerial Drones Technologies limited pilots are very experienced and have passed the CAA-approved exams and flight assessments. They all hold the established industry Remote Pilot Qualification (RPQ-s) for multi-rotor aircraft under 7kg.


To fly a Small Unmanned Aircraft (‘SUA’) in the UK, either commercially or recreationally, all pilots are required to comply with CAP393: Air Navigation Order unless otherwise approved by the CAA.


The main operational conditions for an SUA are:

Maintaining 50m from people and property not in control of the pilot.

During takeoff and landing maintain 30m from people and property not in control of the pilot.

Permission of the landowner to take off and land.

Do not fly directly overhead or within a minimum distance of 150m from an open-air assembly of over 1000 people.

Fly a maximum height of 400ft above ground level.

Maintain visual line of sight of the SUA to a maximum distance of 500m.

Fly during daylight hours, so that you can clearly see the SUA and take avoiding action from other air users if required.

Outside of controlled airspace.

Restrictions apply to certain areas of Central London and additional permissions to fly in these areas need to be sought from the CAA.

Restrictions and rules apply to flying near an airport and aerodrome.
