CAA Award Texo Industry-Leading Flight Permissions


CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY (CAA) AWARD TEXO INDUSTRY-LEADING FLIGHT PERMISSIONS

Texo Drone Survey and Inspection Ltd, the owner-operator of the world’s most dynamic fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for industrial applications are pleased to announce the award of the UK’s most comprehensive set of congested area commercial flight permissions ever awarded by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Given the extensive fleet of drones owned and operated by the company, the Operating Safety Case (OSC) was formed around specific equipment and the technical complexity of flights in a variety of demanding operating environments.

This unique set of Permissions from the CAA include the ability to operate:

    -To within 5 meters of any person, vehicle, vessel or structure

    -Over or within 10 meters of a structure that has a height for more than 400ft

    -To within 50 metres of an organised open-air assembly of more than 1,000 people

    -Extended Visual Line of Sight (EVLOS) to 1,500 meters

John Wood, Chief Operating Officer, Texo Group said: “I am immensely proud to make this significant announcement. This marks a watershed in the evolution of our business. Being awarded these extensive and expanded permissions by the CAA really does vindicate our position as market leader in commercial drone operations in the UK.”

Mr Wood added: “Texo are the first and only operator to have been awarded these new flight permissions and my team and I are delighted to have the full confidence and commitment from the CAA. We have some very exciting developments to announce in respect of our Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations and this is a great foundation to move forward on.”
