Commercial drone operations are highly regulated by the CAA in the UK; in order to gain permissions for aerial work an organisation must demonstrate competency and proficiency. The award of these permissions assures Blackwing’s clients that their tasks will be carried out safely and legally in accordance with the regulations

Blackwing has had to produce a detailed Operations Manual for the CAA; it defines the processes and procedure that the organisation must adhere when undertaking tasks on behalf of the client. These include detail pre-site surveys and risk assessments to ensure the task can be undertaken in a safe and legal manner. The organisation will also need to obtain permissions where necessary from 3rd parties such as Landowners and Air Traffic Controllers.
