Our motto ‘Is it safe, Is it legal, Is it ethical’

 

SAFETY PROCEEDURES & OPERATIONS

Safety is paramount and we follow strict procedures as laid down in our Operations Manual which has been
approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). A feasibility study is made to determine each flight can be
carried out safely, legally and ethically.

 

AIR NAVIGATION ORDER 2009

The CAA stipulates that our aircraft must be flown: within 400 feet above ground level, within 500 metres
of the pilot and always in visual line of sight, no closer than 50 metres of persons, vehicles and buildings
not directly under our control

 

RISK ASSESSMENT

Prior to arrival at each location and once on-site, a comprehensive risk assessment is carried out.

 

AIRSPACE CHECKS

If operating in controlled air space and busy areas, we contact the relevant local Air Traffic Controller
and Police to advise them of our flying activity.

 

WEATHER CHECKS

All flights are subject to suitable weather conditions. The Pilot will assess the conditions prior to the flight
and a judgement will be made as to whether it is safe to fly.

 

LANDOWNER'S PERMISSION

We need to obtain the permission of the land owner prior to take off and landing.

We are fully insured for public liability cover (£5 million) for aerial projects. 

Our pilot and operator has CAA Permission for Aerial Work (PfAW).
