Do you have a licence to fly?
Yes, every commercial UAV operator & their pilots must have either a RPQ-s or BNUC-s qualification taken through CAA approved bodies.
Aerial Views have completed and passed a RPQ-s qualification through Resource Group http://www.resourcegroup.co.uk
Do you have insurance?
Yes, Aerial Views have £5 million public liability insurance for flights within the UK.
Can the weather affect you flying?
We can fly safely up to winds of 20mph, however, for best results 10mph or less is ideal for smooth stable footage.
We can’t fly in the rain as this affects the aircraft electronics and the camera.
We can fly in cloudy conditions but for best results sunny weather is always preferred.
How far can you fly?
We are allowed to fly to a max of:
400ft (121m) altitude above ground.
500m horizontally from the UAV pilot.
How close can you fly to structures & people?
Structures – We are allowed to fly within 50m of any structure.
If permission has been given and the structure is in our control we can fly as close as we deem safe.
People – If they have been briefed and have their permission we can fly as close as we deem safe.
How long can you stay in the air?
Each flight will last for approx. 15 minutes on one battery. We carry multiply batteries to each job to ensure we capture the footage you require.
Can you fly indoors?
Yes, dependant on the size of the area.
What is the quality of the footage captured?
Video is captured in 1080P High Definition MP4 format.
Photographs are captured in JPEG or RAW format and up to 14MP.
