Practical Drone Solutions was envisioned in mid-2016 and finally established in June 2017 and offers a range of services which includes aerial surveys, aerial inspections, aerial photography and aerial filming. Our vision is to offer affordable, professional and reliable services – with safety being our top priority.
At Practical Drone Solutions, we believe in giving our clients the best value for their money and are committed to improving our knowledge and skills required for aerial photography and videography, by investing in educational courses, as well as the most up to date and reliable aerial platforms needed for aerial data capturing. Practical Drone Solutions aims to provide a personalised service to all of our clients.
We are based in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, which gives Practical Drone Solutions great access to the whole of the United Kingdom.
Chief UAV Pilot
Wayne Coomer | MD
As a fully insured, NQE certified, Remotely Piloted Aerial System (RPAS) operator, Wayne holds his pilot license since June 2017. Having spent the last 20 years in the construction industry, Wayne understands the necessity of health and safety and the requirements needed for working on live sites.
Fully Qualified and CAA Certified
All of Practical Drone Solutions pilots have been trained and assessed by a National Qualified Entity (NQE) here in the UK, and the company itself has been issued with a ‘Permission for Commercial Operation‘ (PFCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The PFCO certificate gives assurance of pilot competence and airmanship. We have recently received our 2018 licence which now includes the ability to fly at night.
When choosing a service provider for your aerial photography and aerial filming, insurance is a key component that cannot be overlooked and should be the first requirement requested by any potential client. Practical Drone Solutions are fully insured by Moonrock Drone Insurance, a leading commercial insurer for UAV Operators and holds commercial and public liability insurance which includes accidental damage to property, to the sum of £5m.
