Quotations and Pricing :
Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd offer a Rate List for clients to approximate the costs they may incur by employing the services of Yorkshire Drone Photography for ‘standard flight operations’. However it should be noted that due to the complex nature of operating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in the United Kingdom (UK), the Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd Rate List is only offered for the purpose of price approximation and must NOT be considered a written quotation.
Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd will only honour prices provided in dedicated written quotations with Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd reference numbers and provided to clients by Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd upon request, with any quote remaining valid for a period of 30 days from the date on the quotation.
Standard Flight Operations and Non-Standard Flight Operations :
As an approximate guide, for a flight to be classed as a ‘standard flight operation’, then the proposed flight must satisfy ALL of the following nine statements:
1) – The UAS must be flown entirely over land/property either owned or controlled by the client.
2) – Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd must be granted permission to take-off and land from the land/property in question, by either the owner or a person authorised to grant permission.
3) – The UAS must not be flown over or within 150m of any organised open-air assemblies of 1,000 persons or more.
4) – The UAS must not be flown over or within 50m of any person, vessel, vehicle or structure, that can not be directly controlled by the Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd Pilot.
5) – The UAS must not be flown over or within 150m of any congested area.
6) – The UAS must not be flown at night.
7) – The UAS must not be flown over water ( Unless approved in advance ).
8) – The UAS must be fitted with one of the standard cameras featured on the rates list.
9) – The UAS must not be flown in any form on controlled, restricted or high risk airspace, such as those around airports, HIRTA locations or areas restricted by NOTAM.
Any proposed flight operation that can not satisfy one or more of these nine statements will be classed as a ‘non-standard flight operation’ and will require a unique quotation.
Order Confirmation, Booking Fees, Payments and Cancellations :
Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd require a written confirmation of order before any flights will be carried out, which can be sent via post or email. In the event of booking a non-standard flight operation, the order may require a 25% booking fee, based on the total value of the order.
Any payment or outstanding balance must be paid within the payment terms specified on the invoice, which will typically be 30 days from the date of the flight operations.
Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd reserves the right to add 5% per month to overdue or partly overdue accounts and will retain all rights to supplied material until payment is received in full.
Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd will only release either photos and or video’s on receipt of payment in full
Notice of cancellation by the Client must be received at least 7 days prior to any planned flight operation date. A cancellation may incur administrative charges to recover expenses incurred if any preparatory work has been undertaken by Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd on behalf of the Client.
Permissions for Commercial Operations :
It is possible that aerial work may require Police, Local Authority and/or Parking Enforcement permission, to operate in a public location. Due to this Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd will only conduct flight operations once suitable permissions and legal access has been obtained/granted in order to operate safely.

The use of any material produced by Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd for merchandising or onward sale, or by any third party not directly on the Client’s behalf, is NOT permitted without written permission from Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd. This will incur a negotiated Reproduction Fee. Moral rights will always be required in that the name of the author of photographs (i.e. Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd), commissioned or otherwise, is suitably credited whenever the material is published or displayed.
Where the Client supplies Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd with material, it is the Client’s responsibility to obtain all necessary copyrights for its use and Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd assume that the Client possesses said copyright/permissions. In such cases, the copyright belongs to the Client. By signing the agreement, the Client agrees to indemnify Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd from any claim which arises regarding the use of material with which the Client supplies.
Material NOT Created by Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd :
In situations where the Client agrees to provide Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd with additional copy, images and information to add to edited works, Yorkshire Drone Photography Ltd accept no responsibility for the Client’s work not being completed by a specific date if we are unable to secure necessary and/or suitable information and/or materials from the Client.
