Drones – Support Overview


Qualified aeronautical engineers with over 35 years experience in operational aviation, developing aviation equipment based operational capabilities. Our experience is in delivering high availability capabilities for operationally critical services. Commercial application of Drones requires an aircraft system that is cost effective, and to operate at a profit. Similar to Defence and Security capabilities, commercial operation is reliant on the system’s availability, reliability and sustainability to be successful.

With this foundation in operational aviation, in early 2009 we began to develop our specialist knowledge and experience in the commercial use of Drones and their systems to satisfy equipment capability requirements. In 2010, we were one of the first UK operators in UK to obtain the UK CAA permission to operate commercially, now referred to as a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO). In 2016 we were approved as a UK CAA Restricted National Qualified Entity (R-NQE) allowing us to assess commercial Drone/SUA Pilot competency against CAA criteria and make recommendations.


We are focused on the delivery of cost effective support and promotion of customer’s safe and legal use of Drones for recreational use and commercial use.

We are able to support customers in a range of areas examples:
