About Drone Rangers


CAA QualificationVirtual Shropshire Drone Rangers are based in the beautiful market town of Much Wenlock. We holds a General VLOS Certificate (GVC) and an Operational Authorisation certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA reference UAS 1090).

All flights are conducted in accordance with the Air Navigation Order and we are fully insured for commercial aerial work. 

It is illegal to operate commercial drone flights without (EC) 785/2004 compliant drone insurance. 

Our remote pilot is Virtual Shropshire owner Paul Hutchinson, assisted by trained observers Susan and Maggie. Paul has been flying drones since 2013 and acquired his commercial qualification in July 2015.

Flight Safety

Safety is our prime consideration for all flights. We undertake a series of procedures to ensure each flight can be conducted without risk to persons or property.

These include risk assessments, site surveys, pre flight checks etc. During the flight our trained observers will ensure members of the public are kept at a safe distance from the area of operation.

Our observers will also bee keeping an eye on anything else in the air, such as other aircraft and birds,  that would pose a hazard to our flight.
