Are you insured and licensed?
Yes. We have £5 million public liability insurance and all of our pilots are fully licensed with the BNUC-S qualification. We have also been granted permission for aerial works by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
Are your platforms safe?
In order to gain our permission for aerial work from the CAA we had to prove that we operate with safety as our main concern, and have all our safety procedures checked and verified. We are always very strict on keeping to the high standard we have set for ourselves to ensure each job is carried out in the safest possible way.
Can you fly in winds?
Our platforms are rated to fly safely in winds up to 10 m/s (22mph) but obviously as you start to reach this threshold the quality of footage and imagery starts to suffer.
How long can you stay in the air?
We can Fly for around ten to fifteen minutes per battery. Luckily we have a lot of spare batteries as well as on the job charging solutions to ensure we have enough time in the air to get the shots needed.
How high can you fly?
Again we are governed by the CAA who state that we cannot fly higher than 400ft, Should you require a higher altitude this can be achieved by applying for special permission from the CAA, although for most jobs 400ft is adequate.
