Drones are an incredible tool for getting that epic establishing shot or impossible camera move, but increasing regulation means it's hard to fly them in built up areas.
Luckily, our we have a trained and certified Drone Pilot - Luke Armstrong carries a CAA permit to operate and can fly at night and in built up areas.

Can you fly in rain?
A: Our aircraft is not rated for wet weather, so if we're rained off or the forecast looks unfavorable we'll arrange an alternate date.
Can you fly at night?
A: Yes! We're qualified for night flights and have plenty of experience doing this.
Where can't you fly?
A: The short answer is, it's complicated - but there's often a solution! Talk to us and let's see what we can do!
What equipment do you use?
A: We're currently flying the Mavic 2 Pro which we love! We can also rent and fly larger drones, but we've used our Mavic 2 Pro on feature film projects to great effect with it's 4k sensor and 10bit video, it intercuts nicely with thee top movie cameras like RED and Arri Alexa. With it's compact size and sub 1kg weight, it makes it safer when overflying participants than larger drones in the unlikely event of a problem.
Why not use a helicopter?
A: Helicopters are awesome, but very expensive! Drones are cheaper, safer, greener and can achieve impressive shots at low altitude which wouldn't be possible with a helicopter.
How can you ensure safety?
A: Our pilot has undergone a CAA approved training course with an approved NQE involving a written exam and flight tests (he scored 98%!). Our pilots are audited and regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our whole operation is about operating safely. For every flight, we undertake a detailed desktop study of the site and risk assessment and take actions to mitigate any risks we identify. During the flight, we may employ physical cordons where necessary, our team may wear identifying PPE and for certain situations we even carry a parachute system!
