eLearning Guidance for the Operating Safety Case (OSC)
If you want to operate with reduced distance separation compared to what the standard Permission for Commercial Operations allows (less than 50m), then you have to submit an Operational Safety Case Volume 3 (commonly referred to as an OSC Volume 3). This is specified in the CAA’s guidance (CAP 722).
This OSC is submitted in addition to Volumes 1 + 2 along with supporting evidence in an application to the CAA for a non-standard Permission.
The Uplift Drones online guidance course contains expert guidance from our experienced consultants, gained from a legion of successful OSC Vol 3 applications. You will receive extra detail and instruction, above and beyond what is provided in CAP 722 on how to structure your OSC Volume 3 application to the CAA.
We recommend you have already held a PfCO for a significant period of time, with significant logged flying experience, before application for an OSC approval.
This course, which includes over 30 videos across 6 core lessons, walks you through the process of putting together your Operation Safety Case (OSC) Volume 3 or Exemption and applying to the CAA. Subjects covered include:
Learn at your own pace, in your own time – without taking any time off work. All you need to do is login and pick up where you left off. With a progress tracker to mark your success and guide you through each module, all in the comfort of your own home or office.
The OSC Vol 3 eLearning course takes approximately 8-10 hours to complete.
“Qualified drone operators will be well aware of the benefits of holding a PfCO from the CAA. The OSC Vol 3 or sometimes referred to as an “exemption” is the next step to gaining permissions that are above what the standard PfCO allows. These enhanced permissions may be operating closer to uninvolved persons or flying higher than the standard PfCO allows.
Our OSC online guidance course gives an insight into how to write the documentation to support this application process and what evidence to submit to the CAA.” – Matthew Lee, Director of Uplift Drones
Completion of the course does not grant a reduced distances permission or “OSC”. Nor does it guarantee approval when applying to the CAA, as the final decision for any permission rests with the CAA based on the evidence submitted. This course will provide expert guidance to give you the best chance of approval.
