Are there any rules for drones?
Simply put yes, there are many rules that we have to operate within. There are regulations put in place by each countries Civil Aviation Authority and our own company to insure a safe operation. These normally are not restrictive for normal operations.
What height, range and speed can you fly at?
We are required to operate within the CAA regulations. This means we can fly up to 400ft high and 500m radius from the pilot. We find these restrictions are never really a factor for most operations and being able to fly below 400ft (unlike helicopters) makes our aircraft incredibly versatile. We can fly up to speeds of 30mph (50kph)
What weather can we fly in?
We can operate in lots of different weather, the aircraft is capable of flying in wind speeds of 20mph although when operating in a site with many obstacles such as trees this may not be possible. We cannot yet fly in rain which tends not to be very restrictive.
We understand that weather is changeable and are flexible regarding this. Our pilots keep a close watch on weather patterns and forecasts and will keep you updated the days approaching your booking.
Can we fly indoors?
Yes is the simple answer although naturally we do require a reasonably sized area. The CAA regulations do not effect us when we fly in doors.
