David Hart: Pilot & Cinematographer, CAA Approved, BNUC qualified

​​​​​​David's career spans more than 25 years as a TV cameraman, filming a vast array of programmes for the BBC. He also has a wealth of knowledge in post production and has accrued more than 100 hours airtime. David often teams up with Howard when there is a requirement for dual flying. Having a two man drone operation brings with it a new set of disciplines, which in turn provides clients with an excellent opportunity to capture drone material not always possible with a single operator.

All UK, commercial 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 do not have the relevent certification, then they will not have the relevent public liability insurance.

Vistaworx carries up to £5,000,000 public liability insurance and has full RPQ-s certification and CAA Operational Authorisation (previously PfCO) We also carry full night time permissions with CAA approval, allowing us to fly at any time throughout a 24 hour period.
