AERIAL UAV SURVEY

Notice: We are still operating and serving businesses during this Covid-19 Pandemic.

Aerial Survey with UAV Drone.

Remotely operated drones with skilled pilots, coupled with good surveyors are becoming the standard in assessing and surveying.  Land surveyors can be costly and time consuming for wind farms for obvious reasons, but aerial surveyors can provide very high-resolution imagery, all whilst requiring a limited ground access to carry out the survey. Aerial surveying like this takes people out of the danger of otherwise dangerous situations.

Following are some of the main benefits of a UAV survey when compared to a traditional land survey:

  • UAV drones are far more cost-effective
  • The site work can be done in a much faster time-frame
  • High resolution images in a RAW format showing excellent detail
  • Limited ground access is required on site
  • Hazardous and inaccessible land can be surveyed
  • UAVs offer improved data – topographical information plus high-resolution aerial imagery

Note: We work alongside Surveyors and engineers, but we ourselves are not qualified surveyors.

Our equipment

We use a Mavic Pro 2 with a mounted Hasselblad camera. This has a superior Sony sensor than that of DJI’s standard drone gimbal cameras, and this one in particular has a 1-inch sensor with 14 stops of dynamic range with RAW capability. We carry our CAA certification for PfCO (Permission for commercial operations) with us, along with safety equipment which is a legal requirement, such as a small fire extinguisher, a drone-landing pad, safety cones, fire blanked and a high-vis jacket as standard.

We are certified with a CAA PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations), and we have a good understanding of UK air regulations, flight safety, flight planning as well as flight skills.

This means we can provide aerial UAV flights to gather images and photography for property development and real estate advertising, drone mapping, drone surveying and for video production and  film-making.

Drone pilots remotely operate drones for aerial surveying, video production and aerial photography. Some of our work involves aerial photography for property agents, aerial surveying and inspecting infrastructure, such as bridges and tall buildings, and mapping land use for farming or archaeological work.

We provide a full pre-site assessment before we proceed, which we complete using a variety of ordinance survey maps, Google maps and UAV flight tools to get a better understanding of the local area of your post-code, assessing any risks and hazards which we need to be aware of. Once we can confirm a safe flight can be conducted, we can both agree on a time and day for the flight operation.
