Unique Regulatory Approval

Unique regulatory approval

Aspira has worked closely with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in order to gain unique regulatory approval and has provided approved training organisations to ensure we fly with all the appropriate permissions and certifications

Aspira develops and operates bespoke unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), popularly known as drones.  As with any aircraft, unmanned aircrafts must be flown in a safe manner at all times – both with respect to aircraft in the air and people/properties on the ground.

As with any company operating drones on a commercial basis, Aspira has been granted the standard CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO). This ensures that Aspira:

  • Has CAA approved and qualified pilots to fly our vehicles
  • Understands aviation theory and the regulations surrounding flight
  • Has robust operating and safety procedures to manage flight operations

In addition to standard CAA Permission, Aspira has been granted an additional regulatory approval certification by the CAA permissions and exemptions scheme.  This enables Aspira to operate in built up areas and beyond the normal bounds of the regulations laid down within the Air Navigation Order (ANO).

With this additional certification, Aspira can operate in very close proximity to buildings and structures within congested areas. This has involved the production of a detailed Operating Safety Case (OSC) and amendments to the standard operating procedures to ensure the CAA is satisfied that flight in these exceptional circumstances can be achieved in a safe and controlled manner.

We believe this particular exception to be unique to Aspira
