Professional Wedding Photographer cautioned for illegal drone use.

drone pilot cautioned by Cheshire police

With huge improvements in drone technology in recent years, more and more people are starting to use drones for their commercial businesses but this currently requires a permission from the CAA, called a PFCO (Permission for commercial operations).

As a result of this increased use, police forces accross the country are becoming more aware of the rules apposed on drone use. Therefor this is starting to lead to convictions for the illegal and dangerous use of drone technology.

Cheshire police tweeted about a professional wedding photographer being given a caution because he was mis-using a drone. The operator was reported to have endangered an aircraft and operating without a PFCO for financial reward. If the operator completed a drone curse and gained his PFCO, then he would have known and understood the laws and risks whilst flying drones in the UK.
