Capture stunning images and video previously only available by plane or helicopter with your own easy to operate SkyCam aerial drone.

Run your own drone operation thanks to the experts at SkyCam. You can own your own business doing something amazing in a thriving industry that is sweeping the globe.

No experience necessary... full training is given to get started!

About the Industry

Drone hire in the UK has absolutely gone through the roof in the last five years and is now thriving, but with the laws and regulations in place, you need to ensure you are licenced and backed by the right people before stepping into this industry.

Drones have made it possible to take photos and video footage that could have only previously been taken by helicopter or plane. This new method is cheaper, quicker and easier, yet produces simply stunning footage.

There could not be a better time to get into this marketplace.

When you take delivery of your SkyCam drone, you get all the benefits of running your own business without the headaches of how to get it set up. Flying the drone for other people is so much fun it won’t even feel like work.

You will not need any experience in video, photography or flying radio-controlled aircrafts, as absolutely everything is given to you in our CAA approved three-day training course and optional photography course.

Skycam now has many franchisees nationwide, with numbers growing each week, making us the largest in-house supplier of drone operators in the UK!

SkyCam Testimonials
I’ve recently completed my set up with The SkyCam. I only passed the training and got my operational Authorisation a few weeks ago and I’m already getting work trickling through. I completed my first paid job yesterday. I was nervous when I arrived on site but once I got the drone up, I started to really enjoy myself. I got some fantastic footage, and the client was really pleased. They also said they would be sending more work my way in the future. I enjoyed it so much it didn’t feel like being at work! I’ve got another job pencilled in later this month and I’m waiting to hear back from another I’ve quoted on. The support from SkyCam is fantastic and the team are always at the end of the phone if you need them. It’s early days but so far, I’m really enjoying my SkyCam journey.
Paul Cruise – SkyCam franchisee,
I joined the SkyCam franchise at the beginning of 2022, in my short time with the brand I have received plenty of assistance from HQ and continue to do so they are always on hand to lend support should you need it, It’s the support and brand awareness that led me to choosing to be a part of The SkyCam brand! I have spent most of my working life in the construction industry and at the end of last year I felt like branching out and making a change to something new after looking around at opportunities The SkyCam was the one I decided to give a go, with an increasingly expanding industry and ever changing technology there is always something new and interesting to learn as well as being a good opportunity to create a viable living from. I’m pleased to have made the move into this industry and I’m excited for the experiences ahead from this new venture! I look forward to growing with the brand and working with the company to establish a successful franchise of my own!
Rob McDonald, SkyCam franchisee,
Since Joining The SkyCam, we have been supported by the team at HQ with all facets of business set-up. They have also given us advice and assistance on all aspects of the aerial imaging business, from how to approach marketing through to quotations and general administration. Overall, we are grateful for all the support which The SkyCam HQ have provided us with.
Mark and Lisa Hallam,
Looking for something to do to take me away from day-to-day building. I came across The SkyCam Franchise. Fresh air, photography, and fun, let's call. Got hold of Justin, very friendly and informative, and a good salesman. Signed up, everyone to date has been polite, sociable and informative. Just getting to the end of set up and looking forward. Thank you The SkyCam for future opportunities and change of lifestyle.
Terry – SkyCam franchisee,
We were informed about Skycam through another franchisee. After looking through their website and the initial conversations, it sounded something of interest that could be a good side hustle. Anyway, as we had more talks and a couple of zoom meetings with SkyCam, and it soon started to feel that it could be quite exciting becoming drone pilots. We never had any previous experience; however, we were soon re-assured that there is plenty of support and training available in order to get our business off the ground. So, both myself and business partner decided to go for it. Due to other obligations, we were able to do the course and set up at a pace around our work, which was very helpful. It’s soon coming to 12 months of having our franchise and we have a number of leads. We have also had good support from Justin and the team. We have noticed that they are continuing to improve and invest in their CRM system and just generally to make the business a better platform for their franchisees. We are glad we have chosen Skycam as a company.
Mitch and Nirav – Franchisee ( March 2022 ),
Since we set up SkyCam we have been impressed by the professionalism and support from Gemma and Justin, this is a franchise that continually works with you and the follow up training from the Mentor team has been very helpful for ideas on how to market and improve our options for work. If you are thinking of a SkyCam franchise, I would definitely recommend it as this is not a normal nine to five role, we are now involved with our local West Cumbria Search and Rescue volunteers as their drone team helping search for missing people and pets, you never know where your SkyCam franchise will take you next.
Lewis and Karen Sharman, SkyCam franchisees,
“I purchased my franchise in January and now cover Bishops Stortford, Hitchin & Leighton Buzzard. I gained my qualification and registration by March and I have since worked with the St Neots franchisee in London and the Colchester Franchisee in various areas which has been really helpful. Over the last couple of months I have been building my portfolio and social media sites. The SkyCam have been very supportive through this period and have supplied some referrals for future work”.
Darren Wing, SkyCam franchisee,
"I received my PfCO in August 2019, and have been gradually doing some very interesting jobs, although 2020 when COVID hit everything slowed down, and now It's picking up again. I've just done a roof survey, which is going to now lead to more work, and last week I did an aerial photo shot of a field that will be used for camping, near Padstow in North Cornwall, with the Drone out at sea looking inland. The client was very happy, and now he wants one from the same position at high tide, at sunrise. This is the sort of work I decided to join the SkyCam franchise for. My office for the morning will be a field on Cornwall's South West Coast Path and it beats working in a factory that's for sure. I'm now going to push for more of these jobs and all the tools and support are there for you to achieve this. I feel now I'm getting myself established, and I'm excited for my future with Skycam."
James Brindley – SkyCam franchisee,
I have been a franchisee for just over a year now and have fantastic support from everyone at SkyCam. I love that fact that I get to complete different and varied jobs and that I can fit them around my life. It was a great decision to go for the franchise and do not regret it at all. I look forward to continuing to grow and develop my business with the support of my account manager.
Mark Henderson (2021) - SkyCam Franchisee,
I wanted to set up an aerial photography/videography business, and The SkyCam franchise helped me to achieve this. They helped me to set up 2 areas within 2 months, including delivery of the drone and associated equipment, arranging theory/practical training with a CAA qualified trainer, and helping with the marketing and insurance. They were already providing potential leads before I gained my CAA GVC operational authorisation, and continue to support my business.
Glen (2021) - SkyCam Franchisee,
