"A report from accountancy giants PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that drones will eventually save UK firms £16 billion a year."

Unfortunately drones have been the cause of bad press over the last few years, most notably the closure of Gatwick airport for three days in December 2018 which grounded 1000 flights and effected 140,000 passengers. The culprits of the bad press have been recreational operators who have showed a complete disregard for the regulations and safety of others. Sadly this bad publicity is something that qualified and professional drone operators need to overcome because the benefits that drones can bring to all sectors of business in the UK is astronomical. 

The positive impacts of drones needs to be highlighted much more. One positive impact being that drones can save British businesses money. In fact the Government published a report by the PWC that estimated that by 2030 drone use could save businesses £16 billion. Hearing figures as big as £16 billion makes adopting the use of drone services into to your business plan a no-brainer. 

The drone industry has developed very quickly to add value across a huge range of fields from media and photography to surveying and inspections. BB Drone Services Ltd is one of many professional drone businesses in the UK who offer its commercial and domestic customers drone services.

Using traditional methods for capturing aerial photography or conducting surveys brings with it a hefty expenses bill. Some of these traditional methods are using scaffolding, mechanical lifts, crane rigs and helicopter platforms, all methods we mimic, even improve on with a drone without the high cost. In addition to providing capturing methods cheaper than the comparable conventional methods, a drone is also a safer method as it limit human exposure to risk.    

3. Time is money
