I’m Kenneth Sands, Professional Broadcast Cameraman and PFCO holder based near Glasgow, Scotland.
Have been a Commercial UAV Pilot since August 2016.
I am on the BBC Approved UAS Operators List, am signed up to DroneSafe Register and ARPAS.
I’ve had very little Aerial work, surprisingly, as I produce very good images.
This, I feel, could be due to a saturated market filled with illegal operators undercutting the current market rates and most of the good work going to two/three big companies up here that have been doing aerial UAV work for a lot longer than myself.
Hoping 2018 will be a better year for me so that I can upgrade to an Inspire2, X7 and Cendence Controller.

Welcome Kenneth, I think I beat you by 10 minutes.
It’s just the same down here in Dorset, lots of unlicensed operators. I find estate agents the worst. You will find aerial shots in the local press helping to market property, but the estate agent will rarely tell you who took the photos.

Shocking.
I'm really glad that the CAA are increasing costs so that more funds can be put into policing such illegality..;)

Hi Kenneth,

I'm attempting to gain access to this industry after obtaining CAA PFCO in October of last year.
I presently operate from Fife.
