Edit and update it from as little as… £0.00!
There are many Drone Directories for pilots to be listed on, but they’re not all the same, especially when they ask you to part with your hard-earned cash!
We know the pandemic has been tough on everyone, so we’re committing to running the best value for money directory in the UK, with every single initial listing completely free. What’s more, we’ve already pre-populated 3000 of these listings with email addresses, website addresses and phone numbers where we’ve been able to find them online.
These are online, live, now – at no cost to you.
So, we’d like you to check your listings… and you can adopt and edit them too. The charge for this is £20, but we offer a £10 discount to any member of ARPAS UK (the professional association) and a further £10 discount if you place a simple coded link on your website back to the directory. That AGAIN makes it free, for a fully customisable listing, with logos, details of what you do, location of where you are and all the information that will enable us to build out better functionality in the future. You don’t need to be an ARPAS member, and you don’t need to have a link to the Directory on your website if you choose not to.. but even without discounts, it’s still great value for money.
Choice and transparency
From our research, we’ve identified the top directories in the UK and looked at how best to compare them. We’re a technology company that believes in choice and transparency, so it’s worth considering that all directories (whether they are listed on our table or not) have pros and cons. ARPAS UK, for example, is the largest trade association and officially recognised by the government. The Drone Safe Register is a commercial organisation, partnered with Jessops, and do a great job of providing a route for pilots to do business, get quotes, buy new and sell second-hand equipment. Others have pros and cons too… they’re all listed here, we were surprised to find some listing sites don’t pass Google-juice on to pilot websites (reducing quite a bit of the usefulness of the link too), while others have limited additional benefits, despite charging.

Sharing digital dexterity
Level Five are members of various organisations, and are listed on lots of directories…digital marketing is an important part of business, so we know the difference between value for money and a waste of money ourselves. By sharing some of that, we can help make the web a friendlier, more helpful place, to do business.
For us, the Level Five Commercial Drone Directory will never be a core part of our business, but instead, a useful add-on which can be beneficial for our customers, buying professional drones, integrating platforms, delivering services and developing new products. We firmly believe in linking with and supporting the drone community. As drone operators ourselves, we know it’s also a lot of fun!
Will you be adding more functionality?
Yes, the more information pilots add (such as location and services) then we can add functionality such as quote requests for Directory Visitors, maps, etc.
Where did you find my details?
Desk research, mostly Google, etc. We’re not adding information that is not already in the public domain.
How are you doing this at such low cost?
We want to support the growth and professionalisation of the drone industry, and it’s not our core business, so we don’t need to derive all of our income from it. Developing and supporting the UAV sector is good for our business too, as we sell professional-grade technology products which are suited to people and organisations that work in the field.
