2020.03.28 - Permission Granted

I am pleased to announce that I received my Permission for Commercial Operations on Thursday. So I can now use drones to earn "renumeration" and that is great, or would be if the current restrictions didn't make that impossible.

Well, not quite impossible, there is a very, very small chance that we could use the drones commercially if it were necessary to do so. For example, if a builder or surveyor working on a necessary project were to need a drone then we would be able to fulfil that need and earn money despite the restrictions.

The chances of that happening, however, are probably less tan winning the lottery but it is not impossible.

I'm not holding my breath but it would be nice...

Still, congratulations to me for passing all the parts of the PfCO requirements sufficiently well that the CAA had no problem issuing me the permissions.
