How are HOsiHO Drone Network pilots selected?

In order to guarantee the best services, the members of our network are selected with a lot of care among the most talented and active contributors of our aerial videos and photos bank.
First of all the pilots must be able to justify of a certificate (Certificate of Theoretical Aptitude of Telepilot), to be declared to the General Direction of Civil Aviation (DGAC french authority), 
use approved equipment and fly in accordance with the regulations in force.

Furthermore, many rules must be respected depending on the shooting location: maximum flying height, flying time, flying in or out of sight of the remote pilot, weight of the UAV.

In addition to these prerequisites, special attention is paid to the values of the members of our network, with no less than six criteria: creativity, enthusiasm, availability, flexibility, proximity and versatility.


Shooting with a drone, and responsibilities

There is an ever-increasing number of pilots able to take pictures with a UAV, but you have to think carefully before making your choice. Indeed, the quality of drones, cameras and optics has a cost, and going at the very least will rarely be a good calculation. Likewise, the pilot's dexterity will make a huge difference in terms of image framing, exposure and video stability.

By using the HOsiHO Drone Network, you have the warranty that the driver has high quality, recent and perfectly mastered equipment.

But if there is indeed a risk that you should never take, it is that which consists in calling upon a UAV pilot which is not in rule. Because, if necessary, your own responsibility could be engaged in case of control, or even accident. 

Indeed, whether he is a private individual or a professional, the client has the duty to check the legality of his pilot's exercise framework. If the latter is not declared to the DGAC, if he uses non-compliant equipment, if he does not have up-to-date insurance or if he has not requested a flight authorization or does not respect the planned scenario, negligence on your part may be sanctioned.

You will be able to easily avoid these worries by using a drone pilot referenced by HOsiHO Drone Network.

Finally, in the event of a possible problem, HOsiHO Drone Network will act as a mediator and, if the fault is attributed more than once to the pilot, he will be excluded from our network.
