We have two of our directors currently involved in the training and examination process required to become qualified remote pilots. This in turn will enable us to apply to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for ‘Permission To Fly’ on a commercial basis.
This is an essential process to not only attain the approval of the CAA but to enable us to provide the most professional and safe service as possible.
At present we are training with a DJI Phantom 2 with a GoPro 3+ Black mounted on a Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal. Although we regard this as a training setup it is in fact a very capable rig and can produce excellent results.
We will be upgrading to a larger multi-rotor machine in the very near future but will continue to fly the existing rig when it suits a particular job and also to maintain our ‘competency and currency’.
We hope to be fully up and running before the end of May.
