Crisp Aerial Limited is fully insured with public liability cover, follows Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) guidelines and has a Permission for Commercial Operations (previously known as Permission for Aerial Work) to operate Small Unmanned Aircraft systems in the UK, meeting safety requirements and operational standards for undertaking commercial aerial work.

UK Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) Legislation

In the UK operators of Small Unmanned Aircraft are required under Articles 94 and 95 (previously Articles 166 and 167) of the Air Navigation Order (ANO) to obtain permission from the CAA before commencing a flight operation for commercial gain, in any congested area, in proximity to people or in proximity to property.

Permission for Commercial Operations

Crisp Aerial has the required permissions to operate within the limits set out by the CAA. Including to an altitude of 400ft (120m) and distance of 500m from takeoff point.

Qualified Pilots

Our Pilots have completed a National Qualified Entity UAV-specific course to demonstrate an understanding of the regulations (in particular the Air Navigation Order and Rules of the Air Regulations). This requires the necessary skills and knowledge to pass ground and flight exams.


We have public liability insurance that covers the operation of any of our systems in the UK. We also have public indemnity and equipment protection should the worst occur.

Please be aware of companies that do not hold insurance for aerial work. SUA and UAV require specialist insurance that only a handful of companies provide. It is Law that any company operating commercially must carry the relevant insurance to operate.

A copy of our insurance can be provided on request.
