OVERDRONES is a Nationwide professional aerial drone (UAV) photography and video service, with full insurance, qualified pilots (BNUC-S standard), and is CAA permitted for commercial operation (PfCO) with drones up to 20Kg.
Unlike many operators with access to drone technology, we are extremely aware of the issues around flying drones on a commercial basis, and the responsibilities with regard to flight safety, maintenance procedures, and the understandable issues around privacy. We have invested large amounts of time and money in ensuring that we conform to UK best-practice – the UK is arguably the best regulated environment for drones in the world. Essentially Overdrones is run like any aircraft operating company, even though the craft themselves are un-manned as such.
Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) has been granted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to Overdrones as an organization following the successful completion of Ground School, a written examination, and a Flight Test. This also includes extensive review of Overdrones’ Operations Manual and safety procedures. From our CAA licence number you can see that we are one of the original, early drone operating companies.
Basic National UAS Certificate – Small (BNUC-S). This is the preferred pilot qualification standard required by many National Aviation Authorities before a PfCO or Exemption is granted to an operator. Dean Overton is the Chief pilot and is highly experienced in flying drones for all sorts of projects, and in adverse conditions. He is also holds a fixed-wing conventional private pilots licence. All Ovedrones’ pilots are trained to meet the BNUC-S standard.
Overdrones carries specialist drone operators insurance. By arrangement this can be for up to £10million pounds of cover.
