Developers behind Drone Safe Register say they have significantly simplified the process of hiring a drone operator in the UK.
The drone industry is notorious for blurring the lines with regards to booking fees, the group said.
Drone Safe Register claims to have simplified the booking process, launching a new website with a fully comprehensive online-booking system for basic drone jobs.
Having built the UK’s largest network of CAA-approved professional drone operators, Drone Safe Register said it is in the unique position to adopt a ‘user-focused’ website that enables the public to easily navigate available services and even book basic drone jobs with fixed prices.
The new website, which recently went live, has been developed over the past five months with the key aim of simplifying the process of hiring a trained, safe and insured drone operator.
Drone Safe Register has also re-launched the Aerial Stock Library; with location search features, organised categories and reasonable stock prices for projects that require an aerial perspective to boost engagement but don’t have the time or budget for bespoke aerial data collection.
Drone Safe Register’s CEO, Mark Boyt, said: “We are delighted to finally be in the position to launch version 3 of the website and start taking a more interactive and engaging approach to promoting our network of skilled and experienced members aerial data retrieval services.”
He added: “Not only are we in a unique position to educate customers about safe and legal drone services but we able to set a high standard industry-wide with the nation’s first online booking system for more basic drone jobs.
“We feel this move will revolutionise the way the drone industry is used by the general public for more basic drone services and will encourage the hire of trained, safe and insured professionals as opposed to unqualified individuals offering supposedly cheaper services.”
