Drone FAQ’s

Do you work internationally?

We have been flying Internationally for years. As the Laws and legal boundaries are changing all the time country to country we are staying up to date and aware. We have gained permission in many countries to fly, sometimes being the first people in the world to do so. This is not always an easy thing to do and will cost time and money but the benefit of using a team already experienced in doing this for years is getting an answer as efficiently as possible.

What is the range on our drones?

CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) regulations states that UAS systems must be flown within ‘visual line of sight’ in the UK. This gives the Cinehawk an operational ‘bubble’ of 500m horizontally and 400ft vertically.

How long do our drones fly for?

Typical flight times are between 10 -20 minutes depending on the payload, wind, and weather conditions.

Do you need permission to fly?

To operate commercially in the UK you are required by law to be a qualified BNUC-S Pilot and the correct UAS insurance. We have both these areas covered, all we need is the landowners permission to take-off and land.

What weather conditions can our drones fly in?

Our drones vary in different conditions – Ideally you want light winds and a sunny day – our most robust drone can fly in 35mph winds with light drizzle – of course this is not an ideal situation for filming or photos but when there are no other options we do what we need to do.

Can our drones fly over water?

Yes, this is not a problem when take-off is land based.. however flying from a moving vehicle such as a boat does bring in a higher risk of failsafe reliability and these issues will need to be covered before any work is carried out./span>

Are you insured?

We have full public liability insurance cover up to £5,000,000 and personal liability of crew and gear. Cinehawk is also affiliated with Light Colour Sound Ltd which insures all our land based filming with employers liability and film gear cover.
