Personal Safety Statement
Eye in the Sky (Glasgow) Ltd. is committed to maintaining the highest levels of safety to both personnel and property whilst conducting operations within the UK and abroad. We aim to minimize risks by implementing high standards of compliance to relevant Health and Safety laws and the Air Navigation Order 2016, as well conducting thorough site surveys and risk assessments of potential flight locations. Equipment will be maintained to a high standard through regular maintenance as well inspection prior to operations. Aircraft will have insurance compliant with EC regulation EC785/2004.
Associated crewmembers will be thoroughly briefed before flight to ensure a common level of adherence to safety measures and understanding of the mission objectives, as well as having knowledge of the Emergency Procedures noted in UAS OSC Volume 2’s.
The main objective of any flight will be to operate without causing injury or damage to persons, property or other airspace users, whist working within the requirements and limitations of the Permission/ Exemption for an Operational Authorisation issued by the Civil Aviation Authority and this Operations Manual. This said, whilst working for or alongside a client, Eye in the Sky (Glasgow) Ltd. will expect the client to accept liability for areas of responsibility that fall to the client (most notably TV Production Companies), such as Health and Safety on location and the usual insurances and risk minimization procedures expected on a professional Film/ Tv shoot. Should an incident occur during an operation, the reporting procedures listed in this manual will be adhered to in compliance with CAA polices.
Under no circumstances shall any pilot operate company UAS outside of the procedures contained within this manual or the Operational Authorisation as awarded by the CAA. No commercial drone operation will be undertaken without valid insurance.
