Are your pilots qualified?
Yes we hold a CAA recognised qualification RPQ-S. We also have our permissions granted for aerial work by the CAA.
Are you insured?
Yes we have insurance for our machines and cameras and £5 million public liability insurance for flight operations in the UK.
Where can I use a drone?
There are a huge range of applications where a drone can save time and money. We are able to fly anywhere in the UK, subject to risk assessment.
Why should I use a drone?
For many tasks, an unmanned aerial system is the most cost effective, efficient and safe option. We can achieve the same, and often better, results to that of a manned aircraft at a fraction of the cost. In many cases, a drone is the most appropriate solution to your aerial data gathering needs.
How safe is it?
Using a drone is often the safest option for a great number of tasks. Wherever it is dangerous or difficult to send personnel, it is far better to send the unmanned equivalent. Most notably, working at height, especially with equipment or tools, can be a risky undertaking, so using our system avoids this danger completely
Can you see what the camera sees?
Of course! We have a live down-link of the imaging payload that is viewable by the pilot in command of the drone. This enables us to position the camera in the perfect position to capture the data you require.
How far can you fly?
We are currently operating under a standard CAA permission for aerial work which means we can fly up to 500m from the pilot horizontally and 400 feet (120m) vertically. It is possible to get exemptions to fly further and higher but it may incur extra cost and can take up to 3 weeks to organise. Generally the limits are more than sufficient for the majority of projects.
What are your flight times?
Flight times vary depending on the copter and camera payload but are typically around 15-25 minutes per battery set. These times may seem short, but with good planning, a lot can be achieved and we carry plenty of batteries.
