Recently the use of drones has come under increased scrutiny, and rightly so. Our drones travel at high speeds are heavy and have the potential to do a lot of damage if they’re not operated by someone properly trained and CAA Certified. We take the safety of everyone who comes close to a drone very seriously.
We are proud of our meticulous approach to planning and shoot management and the steps we take to reduce the risk to everyone involved in the drone shoot.
Our Planning and Briefing Process
Tell us about your project and the more information you can give us the better. We’ve devised our very own Project Briefing Form that asks many of the questions we need answers to straight from the start.
Safety when filming aerial footage is extremely important. From the information you supply us we will carry out a pre-site assessment using tools at our disposal. We don’t have to come out to your location do this, there are many tools available to us before we visit. We’ll look at:
- No Fly Zones
- Land ownership
- Determining safe take off zones
- Risk assemsents for public
With a schedule planned, we can get your shoot in to the calendar.
A little before the flight date we will monitor the flight conditions such as weather and events surrounding the location, and that we have everything we need to complete a safe flight and filming.
On Site Assesment
We never arrive at site unplanned and unprepared, but sometimes there is no substitute for seeing a location in the flesh, looking at some of the risk factors and natural changes and adjusting accordingly. Trees grow, flags get raised on poles and scaffolding goes up against buildings. Things like these can affect the way that a shoot goes so having a good look around before we start shooting is essential.
After all of the planning, checking and preparation is done, it’s time to fire up the drone and start shooting your footage.
