Flying Permissions

As one of the few companies in the UK to have Operational Safety Case (OSC) approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), we are authorised to use drones in even the most congested areas, including Central London. Having submitted a 280-page operating manual to the CAA, we are permitted to overfly people and property at a height of 25m, as well as taking off and landing from this distance. The basic CAA permission is 50m, which means we are able to capture much higher quality data.

Why walk when you can fly?

Plowman Craven is continuing to push boundaries through a dedicated UAV division that uses the latest drone technology to provide high-accuracy surveying and inspection services to the property, rail and infrastructure markets.
