Health and Safety

As pilots, Health and Safety is of course a priority and in fact one of the biggest reasons why our clients hire CDF as their Scottish Drone Provider of choice. Your business must show that it is hiring in a contractor who is both legal to operate a drone commercially and properly Insured, and a large part of that is covered by our CAA approval for Commercial Operations, however we’ve taken our commitments a step further and we have also become RoSPA Certified, so you can be assured your hiring a Health and Safety Conscious business.

Drone / Public Liability Insurance

Commercial Drone Footage carries a fully comprehensive Annual Drone Insurance policy of £10 million Public Liability cover provided by CoverDrone. However if our clients require additional cover for their site / location this can be arranged.


Elaine Bennet – PeelPorts Scotland

Highly recommend Neil. His drone work is fantastic, went the extra mile for us. We will be using again

Neil Girvan – PublisherPorts Of Scotland Yearbook

Neil / Commercial Drone Footage was contracted at short notice to provide a front cover shot of the 2021 edition of the Ports of Scotland. Neil went above and beyond to make certain that he had the perfect window, ensuring that the weather, light and ship movements were all in his favour.

The pictures were very impressive and we at the Ports of Scotland Yearbook are delighted with the results. The 2021 edition will be our 40th and we feel Neil’s front cover image is the best we ever had!

Congratulations to all at Commercial Drone Footage for producing such high quality work with the minimum of fuss, whilst maintaining the highest professionalism!

Brian Pearce – Forestry Manager Tilhill

As a site manager in Argyll, acess to specialist contractors for unusual activities is difficult, many are required to travel long distances which usually make the job uneconomical. I was very happy to find Commercial Drone Footage, they have now completed 3 flights for me (mapping a large 800 acre site, a 200 acre site and filming operational works for our online media). All were carefully tailored to my requirements, minimising costs, maximising efficiency and had wonderful results. I would highly recommend CDF. 

more coming soon, once our web team catch up!
