See What Our Members Say
I am now in to my second year with DSR. As a relative new comer to the industry, knowledge and experience are vital to try and push my business forward. By being part of DSR, I have received help and guidance from some very experienced players in the industry. This networking has led to working with other DSR members either collaboratively or on a "White Label" basis. This can only be good for our industry.
I have also received some very good leads through the "Find an Operator" side of DSR, some of which may have passed me by without the backing of this recognised brand.
It is great to finally be recognised and represented by and industry leading body. Long may it continue.
Sea Lane Media Limited
Dolphin Drones have been with Drone Safe Register since 2016 and it has, by far, been the best investment made.
We have access to a whole membership full of like minded professionals eager to help each other, we have access to a bespoke OSC and has saved us £000's.
We receive many quotes and have a lot of repeat business clients on our books.
Hope it continues to grow for many years to come.
I have been a member of Drone Safe Register for over 2 years now. Being part of such a proactive and knowledge group of operators is a big help with the daily running of a UAV business. Because of DSR's very existence I have been lucky enough to have worked on a white labelling project supporting a fellow DSR member for a major client, which I wouldn't have got if it wasn't for the networking on DSR. I also helped promote DSR's platform at the drone show in 2019.
I will continue to renew my membership because I truly believe in the positive networking that takes place within DSR
I've been a member of DSR for about 18 months now. The knowledge that I have gained from other members in the group, either online or in person at the various networking events has been invaluable to me and my business.
DSR is full of helpful, knowledgeable operators and being able to lean on their years of knowledge is fantastic.
On top of that, the member discounts and various other benefits make this a fantastic industry organisation to be a part of.
Granta Network Solutions
Since taking a call from Mark back in 2014/2015 to talk about DSR, just talking to mark for that short time with the enthusiasm in his voice and how he believed in his idea. I knew as soon as the DSR network was born I would join.
I have been a member since 2015 in fact member number 33.
The talent in the group is massive and If your not sure about something within a few hours someone in the group would have a solution.
I have gained so must knowledge and upsell the Network when I can
I have been a member of Drone Safe Register since October 2018 and have found it to be an extremely useful platform for sourcing relevant information from fellow commercial drone operators. The depth of knowledge found within the group is invaluable & members go out of their way to help you with any query you may have.
As a customer I would strongly recommend it as the only website you should visit when making an enquiry for drone services. It has a huge database of commercial pilots who are all CAA approved, who all offer varying skillsets and I can guarantee you will find exactly the right operator for your needs with a few simple clicks using the Instant Quote system.
As a member I have only had a few enquiries since joining DSR but I am confident that this will improve once the concept of drone imagery is full accepted by a wider audience. This is still a relatively new industry which will take time to find its feet, however drones are here to stay and are being increasingly used on a daily basis across a very wide sector of end-users, so I have every confidence that DSR will deliver for me in the not too distant future.

Instant Quote is our website dedicated and intelligent contact form that puts those looking to hire a drone pilot in touch with our members for a given location throughout UK and Ireland.
Customers looking for a Drone Pilot to hire use the Instant Quote communication form to provide details about their photography, filming or thermal flight needs, along with the flight location, target flight date and how they want to hear back i.e. email or phone. They also select how many quotes/communications they want to have come back form between 1 to 10. This form is then automatically sent out as an email to the nearest 1-10 operators as selected, to the flight location (post code).
As a DSR Professional Member, you receive the Instant Quote via email to follow up. You will also see the Instant Quotes you receive in your Membership Dashboard area, along with a non-accessible summary of ALL the Instant Quotes that the website has received as a rolling Dashboard feed, so you get an idea about activity.
Instant Quote is NOT a guarantee of work! It is a method of introduction only. You may not hear back from the customer, of course, so it is important that you sell yourself as much as possible when an Instant Quote comes in to you. In addition to an Instant Quote from those looking to hire a DSR listed pilot, searchers may well just source Members from the Map page by zooming into a location and clicking on a member’s map pin – Take a look Click Here

The DSR OSC is an Operating Safety Case written to allow appropriately trained and approved DSR pilots to fly against a specific set of CAA exemptions. The exemptions allow for take off and landing and flights closer to People, Vehicles, Vessels and Structures outside the Remote Pilot’s control than a standard CAA permission. There are minimum qualifications which can be found on the application form and you will have to attend an intensive one day training course culminating in written and flight tests.
Depending on the air-frame you are using the DSR OSC allows for take off and landing down to 10m, flight down to 20m, flight down to 75m from crowds >1000 and Extended Visual Line of Sight (EVLOS) flights up to 1000m from the Remote Pilot. We are intending to improve these as much as we can as we renew.
No, the cost of membership such as production of cards, labels and administration is incurred at the time you take out membership and therefore we can’t issue you a refund or partial refund.
