All our flights are carefully prepared after a thorough assessment of the location of the proposed flight.
On receiving the location of the filming or drone photography project, we assess the area, location, for potential hazards. We check the airspace for restrictions and contact the necessary authorities if and when required. We then check for obstacles on the ground, look out for sensitive areas, nature reserves, schools etc and again contact those responsible to avoid causing alarm.
We then prepare a flight path that will provide us with the required footage for our clients and check that it can be carried out safely. If there are any problems or potential problems we look for an alternative just in case. We find the best and safest place to take off and land, and also find alternatives in case of emergencies. With this assessment we gather as much information on the area and can in this way be very well prepared to carry out the project successfully as well as also react carefully and safely in case of emergencies.
All of our flights are logged in various formats. We can also assess our equipment and maintain good maintenance of the drones and their batteries. We assess and analyse flight paths and see where we can make improvements.
There are various excellent softwares available to assess flight logs, equipment status, etc
Batteries need a careful eye to be as efficient as possible and safe.
