Specialising in complex or BVLOS operations in the Specific Category, our areas of regulatory expertise include:
Obtaining UAS certification can be a challenging process. Our experience and understanding of current developments in CS-UAS, CS-LUAS and EASAs Special Conditions for Light UAS, means that we can help you plan and implement the certification strategy you need to be a market leader in UAS manufacturing.
Rules around the carriage of Dangerous Goods (DGs) by unmanned aircraft continue to evolve. Our detailed understanding of DG regulations has already helped operators in the UK obtain CAA approval for transporting specific categories of DG during BVLOS delivery operations.
We provide CAA approved training relevant to the handling and transport of Dangerous Goods by unmanned aircraft (a prerequisite to obtaining approval to carry DGs). The training is customised to the type and classes of Dangerous Goods that you intend to transport and whether you are 'shipper' or 'operator' of DGs.
Training can be conducted online or, Covid regulations permitting, face to face.
At present, most BVLOS operations require the use of segregated airspace.
The applications process for establishing a TDA can be quite complex (e.g. UK CAA CAP 1616 'Airspace Change') but our experienced team are able to help you get your TDA set up with a minimum of delay and headache.
Scaling up your capabilities by providing expert support whenever you need it, we can provide either part or full-time post holders in the roles of:
