Drone Photography - Do you need a CAA licence?
kevin wooldridge Wrote:I have seen a couple of newspaper articles in recent weeks suggesting that users of photography drones should be in possession of a CAA licence (rough cost £1000). Does anyone know the practical details of a licence for archaeological use? Do we need a licence at all?

My understanding was that if you're flying them for commercial gain i.e. you're charging folk for the imagery created you need a CAA licence. If you're doing it as a hobbyist then you don't.

Maximum altitiude 400ft and must be within 500m of operator with clear line of sight
