Sales of drones in the UK are flying high, but the sky's the limit when it comes to insurance claims caused by the gadgets.
Christmas sales for the past two years have been dominated by the sales of drones which are enjoyed by the enthusiast as well as the commercial operator.
YouTube continues to be flooded by stunning aerial footage produced by the enthusiast. From the sublime countryside landscapes to the great public landmarks.
But commercial operators have more to consider than admiring the views.
While just a handful of people have ever been prosecuted for flying drones illegally in built up areas, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has issued a handy guide or ‘Drone Code’ to help people keep their feet on the ground when it comes to the law.
Drones fitted with cameras must not be flown:
But accidents can happen - from a missed times low level sweep to a weather related mishaps. And commercial operators need to make sure they have the correct insurance to operate their drones as part of their business - from photography to mapping services. Cover looks after you, the public and any buildings ensuring your business doesn’t get grounded by an expensive claim.< BACK
