Jessops has confirmed its formal partnership with Drone Safe Register.
The collaboration comes just months after Jessops chairman Peter Jones invested in DSR on Dragons’ Den last year.
Jessops says the move shows its commitment to the drone industry and wants to underline its promise to ensure drone users are as well informed as possible on all aspects of owning a drone.
Peter Jones explained how he was excited to see what the partnership had to offer.
He said: “I am absolutely delighted with my investment in the Drone Safe Register. Drones offer the chance to take the most breath-taking photographs and video footage, and for Jessops, where ‘image is everything’ there is a perfect synergy.”
Adding: “There are also a myriad of practical drone uses that can save businesses a lot of money – and these should be carried out by professional drone operators with a CAA approved licence. This register provides a quick and easy way to access a professional in your area.”
Drone Safe Register’s founder and co-owner was also delighted.
Mark Boyt said: “I am delighted to be working so closely with Jessops. The scope for drone use is almost limitless. For professional use – from weather forecasting and mapping to agricultural management and wildlife protection – we can provide details of approved drone pilots in your area. For amateur flyers, DSR is one of the first national registers.
He concluded: “As well as access to crucial flight planning information, training and industry updates, members receive ID card and stickers printed with their photo and the current CAA safety code to help identify their drone in case of loss and reassure the public they are part of a membership organisation and enjoying their hobby legally and responsibly.”
Last month, CDP reported on the Government’s new found partnership with Jessops.
