​​​​​​​About Vistaworx


Employing non approved, unlicensed drone operators, without insurance is not only dangerous, but also against the law. All UK drone pilots must have the relevent training certification, CAA permissions and public liability insurance. If you are in any doubt whatsoever, ask the operator, as any approved drone pilot should be happy to show you their relevant certification and approvals.​

Hiring a non approved drone operator can be foolhardy. If they are not CAA approved, then they will not have the relevent public liability insurance. In case of a claim, the procuring party could be held liable.
