Flights cannot be made overhead of members of the public without their prior knowledge and agreement. Between the UAV and people or property not under our control, a horizontal separation zone must be maintained of 30m while taking off and landing, and 50m during flight. This separation zone does not apply to anyone involved in the shoot – they will be briefed on precautions to take when near the aircraft. Within the UK, if flying within 150 metres of built-up areas or near large crowds, PB Motion must make an application to the Civil Aviation Authority for clearance. The application can take up to 14 days, so shoot locations and dates must be given to PB Motion with enough time for this process to be carried out. The same applies for buildings and other property – as long as we have consent from the owner, we can fly close.
