Drone License opens up new capabilities at DLA

DLA is excited to be able to offer an additional service to our clients following the success of our Systems Designer Daniel Gates in recently passing his Commercial Drone Operator License.

Dan’s qualification has enabled DLA to obtain Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), to operate a small unmanned aircraft (SUA); this means DLA can now undertake bespoke aerial photography, videography and site surveys that can be fully integrated into our wider urban design and planning offer.

Partner Simon Pugh said:
“We are using drone technology to increase our understanding of site potential, exploring opportunities literally from a new perspective. It also allows us to combine with our urban design teams and GIS and graphic design software to produce stunning 3D models, understanding a site more fully and producing material for engagement or promotion.”
