DRONE HIRE

Creating stunning imagery and cinematic footage with upto 4K resolution.  Before you consider footage taken from a SUAV (Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) you need to be aware of the following:

The pilot must have a RPAS Certificate (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) and a PfCO (Permit for Commercial Operations) Without these the pilot will be operating with out permission and may be prosecuted if found along with the people that hired them.
 

Our pilots are qualified SUAV and have been given permissions by the CAA to fly commercially including weddings.

Before any flight it is important that we need to ensure permissions have been granted to take off by the owner of the land in which the flight is to take place.  It is compulsory that a pre-deployment survey is carried out to minimise risk on the day to other air users, property, animals and people.  On the day it is also compulsory that an onsite survey is carried out to assess the current location, weather and risk management to ensure safe flight.

Travel is charged at 25p per mile for all round distance.
Price includes a Pre Deployment Survey, OnSite Survey and all recorded footage.
