The CAOSC | Operating in Urban Areas

Congested Areas Operating Safety Case

Horizon AP is one of the first in the country to be granted permission to fly in congested areas with drones over 7kg and without the need to get exemptions on a case-by-case basis. This also allows us to fly at night.

What this means is that we can now fly in a lot more locations, at much shorter notice, and clients can also be assured that our systems and procedures have been accepted by the CAA as safe enough to carry out such operations.

Rather than trying to explain in more detail exactly what the CAOSC is all about, Peter Lee has already done a good job:
