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.  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. 

All operations will be carried out in accordance with the issued Operational Authorisation PDRA-01 and abide by the requirements of UAS Implementing Regulation 2019/947 (as retained in UK Law) and ANO 2016/765 or ANO 2016 as amended.
