Enhanced Permission Consultancy

You may already hold a Permit for Commercial Operations and want to expand on the projects you can get involved with.  Eyeup can help with its training, consultancy and white label services.


OSC Training Workshop

In the aftermath of the 2018 Christmas Gatwick “drone debacle”, our commercial clients will be more aware than ever of the need to use professional, safe operators for aerial work.  It is more likely that operators will be asked to jump through hoops and justify the contents of their risk assessments and method statements.

Operators holding suitable exemptions already find that planning for jobs can be easier with higher margins and this is likely to become more common, making the time and money invested in obtaining exemptions financially worthwhile.

What does the training offer?

By the end of the day you will have gained the knowledge and confidence to produce your own documentation, with an emphasis on operational risk mitigation and the Safety Assessment volume. You will also have a strategic approach to your OSC and how it fits with your existing PfCO documentation to suit your operations.

In February alone, Eyeup has assisted a dozen operators on their journey towards operating under an OSC.  Our clients include FTSE 250 companies, specialists in the mapping and construction sectors and household names.  You will some of our clients credited on some of the most-watched TV programmes and we can help you too.

Course Price

The workshop itself is £650 (no VAT) per candidate. This includes a health check of your existing OM, refreshments throughout the day and a buffet lunch.  For Drone Safe Register Pro members, this fee is reduced to £600.

One-on-One focused OSC Consultancy

We have already helped a number of established operators by sitting down and understanding their current operation and the way this could be improved with an Enhanced Permission from the CAA.  The preparation of an Operating Safety Case can be a daunting prospect but Eyeup will talk you through the process.  We can help put together logical and effective safety arguments and assist with enhancements to your Operations Manual and Systems Template.

We do not provide this service for every operator.  We need to be convinced that you are already a professional outfit with a high level of experience in the field you are looking to enhance.  We can’t and won’t guarantee that any particular application to the CAA will be successful (because we aren’t the CAA!), but we believe that any professional, experienced operator should be able to achieve an enhanced permission with the right guidance.

Contact us for more details at info@eyeup.camera or call 01372 632634.

White Label Option

If you have a project coming up that is a little “tight” in terms of clearances then we may be able to help.  Our Enhanced Permission allows us to take-off and land at 20m clearance and fly at 30m.  In some cases this can make the difference between a safe (legal) and unsafe (illegal) operation.

The images below were taken just 30m from a busy motorway…all legally under Eyeup’s Enhanced permission.

Our basic rates do not change for reduced distances unless there are factors requiring additional costs, e.g. increased number of spotters on site.

OSC Consultancy

Eyeup are working with a major defence contractor to help them obtain an exemption to operate the DJI M600 Pro on their site.  Unfortunately the site is shared with other organisations and is classed by the CAA as in a Congested Area.

Eyeup is advising on training options, manual production and assisting with the safety assessment required to maximise the client’s chances of obtaining the appropriate exemption.

The work we are doing here will help directly save lives in current and historic conflict zones across the world.
