We are located in Barking near Ipswich and we can easily cover anywhere in East Anglia, as well as the rest of the UK as required.
We however cannot simply just arrive anywhere and fly. There are strict rules around how and where we can operate that are set by the CAA, and rightly so.
Commercial drone use is covered by the Air Navigation order and we work within the limits set within this UK legislation, this also includes any data protection considerations.
Part of the project will involve investigation. From a supplied postcode we will check the airspace involved and any restrictions or advisories that are applicable.
We will check the local topography and check for any ground based areas of concern.
There are minimum and maximum distances involved in how high, how far and how close we can fly to buildings and people in areas where we have control and areas where we don't.
All of these will be thoroughly checked to ensure that the project can go ahead safely and within the scope of the regulations.
It will be the case that sometimes there will be projects that just cannot be flown, however, using some of our other services there are alternatives, we will do our utmost to see that you are not disappointed.
WE CAN JUST DO THIS OURSELVES
You have your own drone or you know somebody who has a drone you could just ask to do this for you?
Yes most drones now have perfectly good cameras that could deliver a more than usable result.
However to fly a drone you need to abide by the drone code and the new regulations relating to the class of drone being used (from 2021). This will relate to distances you can be from people and buildings (click here to read more).
Even if you are not paying for the images you receive or if you take them yourself, if you are using them for a commercial purpose then commercial drone work does require insurance cover that conforms to EC 785/2004 standards.
Do you want to keep up with the ever changing regulatory landscape? Do you want to be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of your drone and batteries? Do you want to spend the time to editing images and make them look their best for your adverts? Do you want the outlay of commercial drone insurance?
Or would you prefer to engage a professional with hundreds of hours experience who can deal with all of those things so that you can get on with what you do best?
