Have a safe flight. We’ll take care of it.

We’re fully trained and operate our crews with pilots, camera operators, observers and spotters depending on the job. Pre-site and on-site surveys are undertaken and shot lists examined to ensure a safe and legal flight, day and night.

SITE SURVEY

We’ll ensure a full pre-site and on-site survey to prepare for the flight, check the area is suitable and the appropriate persons are notifed. 

RISK ASSESSMENT

We conduct and send you a full risk assessment so you can plan your day and have peace of mind that we’ve planned a safe and legal flight.

CAA CERTIFIED FOR COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS

We are ready and approved by the CAA for day and night time flight operations. This can be useful for some jobs that need to take place out of hours or where you want to get creative with some low light shots. Please contact us for more information, we’ll draw up a bespoke flight plan just for you.

FULLY INSURED

We have the appropriate insurance fully compliant with EU regulation EC785/2004 for air operators. Flight operations and systems manuals have been submitted to the CAA and approved. They are frequently reviewed to ensure up to date information and laws and regulations. 

SURVEYS, INSPECTIONS AND MORE.

Industry and Planning

Aerial photos and videos are vital in the industry or where works are required, reducing the need for expensive scaffolding in structural surveys, or helping plan sites for permission or development.

ORTHOMOSAIC SITE MAP

Forget satelite view. We can create a high resolution site inspection map that is accurate enough to take measurements from. 

ROOFING AND BUILDINGS

We can capture 20MP photos of roofing and buildings so you can zoom in and find out what’s wrong. No need for scaffolding.

4K HIGH FRAME RATES

Shoot video of an area in 4K or 2K at 60 fps and pause to lock onto a sharp, clear frame for export. We ensure RAW .dng photos are taken so you can get the most data from your geotagged image.

SITE PROGRESS REPORT

Track site progress monthly with flyovers and timelapse setups. Stay on schedule whilst we provide updates to project managers throughout the construction and development process.

HOW DOES IT WORK? THE PROCESS.

A Bespoke and Professional Service.

So how do we work and how can we help you with your event? We require some information before we undertake a project, although we are happy to meet over a coffee, Skype or chat on the phone to discuss your requirements from the ground up, it’s good to have the following in mind for us:

LOCATION

This should be the exact area where aerial activity will take place. We’ll need this information in advance to check that we can legally fly there and the airspace isn’t restricted. We’re happy to check an area for free, just give us a call.

WORK REQUIRED

We want to meet your expectations so it is important we know what we will be filming. Is it a building, a wind turbine, a field, sporting event, person, venue or a shot for shot promotional film? We can help you plan.

SAFETY CHECKS

Once we’ve got a bit more information we will begin the pre-site survey. When this has been approved and deemed to be safe and the weather holds out we will be good to go!

We will conduct an on-site survey to confirm our prior findings and start our flight.

WHAT NEXT?

Afterwards we’ll clean up, wrap up and you’ll receive your requested footage via digital download or delivered on a USB flash drive.

If you’ve opted for editing we’ll liaise with you further and work on this as quickly as possible.
