CAA CERTIFIED

PILOT

CAA Certified Drone Pilot Remote Operator

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.

The footage and photography.

We use a Mavic Pro 2 with a Hasselblad that shoots at 20MP with 4K video recording. The 4k video recording uses the new h.265 codec, introducing stunning 10-bit video quality that we can colour grade to exactly how you like it. Furthermore, we are also videographers and can provide video footage on the ground and in your work environment too, so we can tell a better story of your company.

Aerial time-lapses and high quality drone photography can also be provided, as well as drone mapping, which is a revolutionary strategy of programming the drone to take multiple images in series to generate a very-high quality map for insight into the property details. This can then be passed to a licensed land surveyor, so that contour lines and accurate borders can even be overlaid onto the imagery.

DRONE SURVEYING / MAPPING

Drone surveys are safer, faster and more cost-efficient when it comes to surveying at height. This is also referred to as aerial surveys, UAS surveys and UAV surveys.
Whether it’s a new property development, a bridge or tall building, a busy construction site, a busy stretch of a railway, or a property portfolio, we can capture high resolution imagery and video footage, with the use of drone mapping.

We fly at an altitude of 25 m for aerial surveys to achieve a 1cm (3 inches) pixel size using our specific drone. This gives an accurate spatial resolution for the ground sampling distance.
