The drone industry has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, with drones proving their worth as incredibly efficient alternatives to helicopters or other light aircraft for high-quality birds-eye imaging. Their current use spans many practical, recreational and technologically demanding roles, from environmental damage assessment after floods to event imaging. Drones have been used in search and rescue situations where they can be effectively deployed into zones which are inaccessible by manned aircraft or rescue workers.
Drones have quickly become indispensable in many industries like construction, agriculture and property surveying. They’ve quickly evolved into advanced machines that can catch extraordinary 360 degree footage, or wide frame video data, with astounding detail. Many weddings and other social gatherings employ drones for outstanding footage that cannot be achieved in any other way, making a drone, the go-to device for such occasions.
The government has placed drones under the bracket of ‘small unmanned aircraft’, so for this reason, drone pilots need to be qualified and licensed within the UK. On the back of this requirement, there has been a growing demand for drone hire and qualified pilots who are capable of flying the most expensive, high spec models. In the UK this industry has broadened to provide businesses and individuals the ability to hire the very best models with the most competent and regulated pilots.
The drone industry is set to carry on growing exponentially, and as drones become more commonplace in other areas such as logistics and even parcel delivery, the future of this business looks very bright indeed.
