Heliguy Obtains Consumer Credit Licence to Enable Flexible Finance for Customers
Heliguy can now offer a wide range of attractive credit deals to customers wanting to buy drones and equipment. But we’re unique in that we can offer finance for pilot training.
Recently we’ve been able to give 0% finance after payment of a large deposit of up to 50% but the granting of our Consumer Credit Licence means we can arrange deposits as low as 10% with monthly payments to suit all budgets. Payment plans of just £50 a month are now an option.
The exact amount of the deposit and the loan repayments and term will depend on a variety of factors and your application will be subject to a credit check. The great thing is that we have the flexibility to approach a number of lenders if your first application is unsuccessful.
Pilot training and drone in one unique deal
Heliguy revolves around drones but we don’t just sell the aircraft. We also offer training which enables you to fly your aircraft for commercial use. Any use of a drone for commercial gain, even if it’s a small part of your business, means that you have to be properly trained, approved and insured. Our courses lead to a Permission for Aerial Work (PFAW) granted by the Civil Aviation Authority and that’s mandatory before you can use your drone for any financial gain.
So why not buy your drone and your training with the same finance agreement. That means you can be earning money sooner and can be repaying the loan in affordable amounts. The amount of equipment you need to get started can soon mount up so why not make it easier for you and your business to get off the ground. We believe we’re unique in offering finance for commercial drone pilot training.
Commercial drone pilot training consists of classroom tuition, an exam and a practical flight assessment. Operators wanting to gain a PFAW also have to write a detailed Operations Manual describing how they will run their business. This is submitted to the CAA for approval. Commercial operators also have to obtain the correct level of insurance.
Some people start off with a Phantom 3 Professional to get themselves up an running but the Inspire 1 quadcopter is so capable and versatile it’s probably the better option for people starting out on a commercial venture. DJI’s range also includes heavy-lift aircraft like the S900 hexacopter and the S1000+ octocopter, which are capable of lifting heavier cameras. They also have the added safety advantage of redundancy. If a prop or motor fails you are more likely to be able to land it safely. The DJI Matrice 100 is the Inspire’s sibling, capable of being reconfigured for research and technical work. It can also carry DJI’s collision avoidance system Guidance.
