Drone safety is the most important aspect of our drone operations. You can be sure that when we work for a client a complete risk assessment will be made of the their chosen site. Our safety checks include.. Airspace checks, permissions, weather assessments, securing public access routes.. we do it all. At no time will a drone operation ever endanger the life of anyone or anything.
Drone safety isn’t expensive, its priceless.
As a safety precaution, the Flight Team and Observers are equipped with 2-way radios to insure that any unexpected visitors or aircraft are noted well in advance and avoided.
After our on site risk assessment we will decide whether it is necessary to secure off various public access routes so our take-off and landing zone remains clear at all times.
Prior to the flight day our Pilot will assess the weather using various forecasting models. On the day judgement will be made on site as to whether it is safe to fly.
In the event that our operation takes us near to any busy areas or flight paths, the Police and Air Traffic Control centres will be notified of our whereabouts and intentions.
As stipulated by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority), it is absolutely imperative that we gain the landowners permission before and flights commence.
Our drones have in built emergency safety features such as “Return-to-Home” and “Auto-Land”, so that in the event of an incident an auto-pilot can be initiated.
