The General Visual Line of Sight Certificate (GVC) is a new drone qualification introduced on the 1st January 2021, and is designed for pilots looking to fly heavier drones for commercial inspections.
Having the GVC allows you to fly enterprise drones in the new Specific category – enabling you to operate with heavier payloads and equipment. GVC qualified pilots can fly enterprise drones as close as 50m from uninvolved people.
This CAA Approved certificate also opens up access to a wide range of new areas to fly – without it, pilots will not be able to operate within 150m of recreational, commercial, industrial or residential areas.
