What is a Drone?
A drone is a remotely controlled aerial vehicle that can be fitted with a camera. Drone surveys are ideal for building and roof inspections making it easier to see those hard to reach locations. Every roof inspection conducted by our survey drones offers HD video and high quality photographs.
Why use a Drone?
- Safer – First of all there is no need to send someone to work at height when you can send a drone.
- Cheaper – A drone is a fraction of the cost of hiring a cherry picker or erecting traditional scaffolding.
- Faster – Most of our jobs are completed in under an hour.
Safety is central to our flying activities, therefore the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has reviewed and approved our flight safety management systems. Prior to awarding us with formal permission to perform aerial work.
There are a number of formal procedures that we perform before taking off, designed to make sure every flight is safe and that any potential hazards are identified and controlled. Procedures include pre-site surveys, task specific risk assessments and equipment checks.
There are legal standards relating to the operation of remote piloted air systems, therefore the permissions we have been granted by the CAA dictate what we can and cannot do.
Due to these permissions, your job requests are discussed first with you to ensure we can definitely go ahead. This is because safety is our biggest priority.
How much does it cost?
It costs £400 + VAT for an hour on site, with any additional hours charged at £125 + VAT per hour.
