Managing director Andrew Farrier has a background as a professional photographer, so he’s not just a pilot! He has a trained eye for an image and its composition.
We go to great lengths to ensure the drone operation is as safe as we can make it. All our pre-flight planning is detailed and precise. We have detailed checklists to ensure all our equipment is in perfect working order and it's continually monitored throughout the operation. Public safety is our top priority, and our ground crews continually manage this, to ensure that your customers or employees remain safe at all times.
Our drone hardware and software have built in safety features, like the ability to return home should the uplink from the controller fail. The drones' take-off area will be marked out with cones and safety tape - nobody other than the pilot in command will be allowed to enter this space.
We use two way radios to communicate with ground crew who are clearly visible on the ground wearing special high visibility safety vests.
Our standard UAV drones and handheld cameras film in Ultra-HD 4K video and 20 megapixel still images, using the latest in camera stabilization technology. The Phantom 4 Pro records Ultra-HD 4K video and 20 megapixel still images.
C.A.A APPROVED NUMBER : Aerodrone Media UKPAndEUAS5076
We are fully approved to fly commercial operations.
All of our equipment is maintained to the highest standards in accordance with our CAA inspected and approved operating procedures.
Our remote control gimbal system delivers smooth fluid shots even in difficult conditions. We can operate using a single pilot or a pilot and camera operator depending on the shoot.
Our DJI pilot remote controllers are connected to either iPhone or built in monitor which allows us to stream live video footage from the drone to the ground. This permits both the pilot and client to see exactly what is being filmed in real time and this allows us to adjust the camera pan, tilt, framing exposure and drone flight path as we fly to get the best shots.
Aerodrone Media UK has Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) “Permission for Aerial Work” PFAW which means as a licensed commercial operator of UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) we are governed and regulated by the CAA.
