the nitty gritty
Why should you use a CAA licensed drone operator?
Well for a start it’s illegal for a drone pilot to provide commerical work without being licensed with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and by using one you are potentially putting people and yourself in danger.
A drone pilot must be CASS licensed in order to obtain the correct insurance. So It’s critical for commercial drone work that you only used licensed operators.
Any commercial work is covered by a public liability insurance up to the value of £2million, but a higher amount can be arranged and is assessed on a case by case basis.
Any commercial drone work we provide comes with a full risk assesment to ensure the relevant safety precautions have been put in place and considered and appropriate permission have been granted in advance of shooting.
There certainly are. A standard license covers the drone operator to fly within 30mins of sunrise and sundown. For flight outside of this time additional night-time licensing is required. Don’t worry we’ve got you covered, our drone pilot holds both standard and night-time licenses.
Quite possibly. There are restrictions as to where drones can be operated and commonly near airports there are no-fly zones in permanent operation. In all cases our drone pilot will provide a pre-assessment to ascertain what will be possible, and in special cases may be able to liaise with the the CAA and Air traffic control at the airport in questions to obtain permission.
We certainly can! As long as it is safe to do so, indoor drone footage provides an exciting perspective and can achieve shots from more interesting angles. For examples of indoor footage see above.
Due to the complex nature of drone usage and various elements that may or may not be required (i.e. post production), prices are quoted per project. Get in touch to let us know your requirements and we will happy to provide you with a quote.
It all depends on schedule. We are working constantly throughout the week on various shoots, and generally require at least 2 weeks advance booking but if you have an urgent requirement please contact us direct and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.
If it’s not safe, we won’t fly. A key aspect to drone operation is planning and safety. We will always perform a risk assessment to ensure that the drones can be operated safely at all times. If you have any particular concerns please do raise this with us as we can discuss potential alternatives if required.
We have drones that fly at over 90mph, so if you have a requirement for fast footage such as motor racing, don’t worry we can keep up.
