CAA Commercial Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Permission
KHABON holds the Civil Aviation Authority "Permission for Commercial Operations" (PfCO) and are a licensed commercial operator of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), governed and regulated by the CAA.
The "PfCO" is a mandatory requirement for commercial drone usage in the United Kingdom, along with Public Liability insurance. KHABON are fully insured against injury and damage with £2million public liability.
Safety for UAV flights is our number one priority. Our pilots have passed the CAA-approved exams, ﬂight assessments, and hold the established industry Remote Pilot Qualiﬁcation (RPQ-s) for multi-rotor aircraft.
Each flight is preceded by a detailed online pre-flight survey with location check that includes airspace restrictions, nearby airports and no fly zones to determine are any flight restrictions we need to be aware of.
Each aerial imaging job is 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. Our aircraft are fitted with “return to home” and obstacle avoidance safety features.
An operations plan for each job is written and checked before any ﬂights are undertaken.
On the day the pilot has final say when determining if flying conditions and the location can be deemed safe to fly.
