What price do you put on safety?

We are one of the safest drone operators in the UK. As such we have been awarded multiple Operating Safety Cases from the UK Civil Aviation Authority. We have had to meet stringent demands in order to achieve this and only a handful of operators have been able to obtain safety to this level.

  • UK CAA 10 Meter Take Off and Landing Operating Safety Case

    We have proven our ability to fly safely to the UK CAA and have permission to fly within 10 meters of persons, property and structures outside of our control.

  • UK CAA 15 Meter Congested Area Operation

    We have proven our ability to fly safely to the UK CAA and have permission to fly within 15 meters of persons, property and structures outside of our control.

  • 75 metres from organised assemblies of 1000+ persons

    We have had our operating distance reduced to 75 metres when flying close to organised assemblies of 1000 persons or more

  • 750 Feet Extended Altitude

    We can fly up to 750 feet high. This is 350 feet higher than with a Standard Perrmission.

  • 2 Man Flight Crew

    We will only operate with a 2 man team when using our Operating Safety Case to allow us to concentrate on getting the best shots whilst ensuring a safe flight.

  • Battery Redundancy

    Our SUSA flies with up to 3 batteries, extending flight times and adding an all important additional safety feature in the event of a battery failure.  If a battery does fail, our drone will continue to fly.

  • Motor redundancy

    Our SUSA has 6 motors and will continue to fly in full control with 5.  This safety feature means it will not spiral out of control or fall out of the sky if a motor was to fail.

  • Braked rotors

    Our rotors have brakes for a quicker and safer shutdown procedure.

  • We can fly in the rain

    Our SUAV is capable of flying in light rain.  We would never choose to fly in the rain as water will inevitably get onto the camera lens, but this ability gives additional safety to any mission where the weather may prove unpredictable.

  • Sub-7kg

    Our SUAV is sub-7kg.  The lighter the aircraft, the less damage it is likely to do in the event of an accident.

  • Optical Zoom lens

    Our 30x optical zoom lens means we don’t always need to get as close to our subject as other operators, increasing our margin of safety.

  • Operations Manual

    Our Operations Manual promotes safety and has been produced in-house by our own pilot.

  • Insurance

    Our public liability insurance covers us for up to £5,000,000.
