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.
Use our services to create a site map, inspect buildings or property. We can capture footage with dedicated RAW photos or video data in high resolution with a high frame rate, enabling you to pause a video and extract sharp still images.
We can track the process of a site throughout the month with fly-overs or timelapse setups, enabling you to stay on schedule and provide detailed updates to project managers throughout the construction or development process.
We are trained to a high level 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.
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, laws and regulations are available to the flight crew. These manuals are available upon request.
We are ready and approved by the CAA for day night time flight operations. This can be useful for some jobs that need to take place out of hours. Get in touch for more information.
A Bespoke and Professional Service
We’re featured on Add to Event as a supplier of Drone Hire, Photography and Video! 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:
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.
The 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? Please let us know so we can plan accordingly, we are happy to get creative with you!
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.
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 just requested stills only or short raw footage clips we’ll often be able to give you this on the day. If you’ve opted for editing we’ll liaise with you further and work on this as quickly as possible.
