What is a PfCO, and how do I get one?

If you want to use a drone in the UK for commercial purposes, it's a legal requirement that you have a 'Permission for Commercial Operations' (PfCO). This is granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). 

In order to get your PfCO you'll have to demonstrate to the CAA that you can operate a drone safely in UK airspace (which is rather busy these days!) For more information on what this involves, and how you can apply, head on over to the 'Permissions and Exemptions' page on the CAA's website.
