Where can you fly a drone for commercial purposes?

CAA regulation stipulates we cannot fly within 50 Metres of any structure, person or vessel outside of our control, so if working in urban areas we may be required to get permission from neighbouring properties or businesses and must also be wary off public roads or walkways, also most city councils have varying bylaws regarding drone use near council land which we can find out for you if working in new areas, we also are not allowed to fly within 150 metres of open air assemblies where more than 1000 people are attending without a special permission, if you require services for such an event we can organise all of the appropriate applications for you

Our drones are equipped with the latest technology and software, whilst boasting a variety of sensors to keep it stable in the air and 5 direction obstacle avoidance to assist during flight

We have a CAA approved night rating that allows us to fly any time day or night

Can you fly drones in windy conditions or bad weather?

We can fly in winds of up to 22mph, and can fly during light rain, but anything heavier will compromise the quality of the footage and disrupt the camera lens

Can you fly drones indoors?

Yes, we can fly indoors, though this will be dependent on the size and space within the building and we can also equip propeller guards for extra safety but the dynamics are different, also we will lose GPS positioning but have vast experience flying in fully manual (atti) flight mode

How far can you fly drones? How high can you fly drones?

We are required to fly no further than 500 metres horizontally and 400 feet vertically of our pilots position if we can maintain visual line of site (VLOS), to fly further than this if required we will either have to apply for a non-standard flight approval (NSF) to allow us to go further or relocate the pilot and drone which is extremely quick and easy to do

How long can you fly drones for?

Each of our drone batteries allow for 30 minute flight time, however we have multiple batteries at our disposal and can charge these on the go if required, though in most cases clear planning on what each flights purpose is reduces the need and costs associated with long hours of flight

Do you hire out drones?

Unfortunately we do not hire out our drones solely, if you require a drone then you must also hire a Drone 360 Vision pilot to accompany and pilot the drone

Can I see what the drone sees?

Yes, we have a live feed from the drone’s camera so you will be able to see exactly what the drone is seeing in the moment and can direct our pilot if required

Do you work outside of the UK?

Yes, we are more than happy to take our services outside of the UK if required and can gain appropriate insurance for said country, also the UK’s CAA legislation is viewed as one of the most comprehensive worldwide so gaining permission from other countries partner associations is usually relatively easy as long we maintain our UK standards and take into account any legislative differences
